BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

Child Support Enforcement (CSE) receives reinvestment incentive funds to be used to carry out Child Support program activities as authorized by the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement and in accordance with regulations contained in OCSE-AT-01-04. Title IV of the Social Security Act Section 458(f) mandates that all Reinvestment incentive funds earned by Child Support programs be reinvested into the child support program. There are funds available in the Child Support Reinvestment Special Revenue Fund, of which $433,279 have been appropriated for the cost of Court Team staffing in Section XX of the FY19 Budget Ordinance. This action will appropriate an additional $232,600 from the Special Revenue Fund for legal support services staff and an additional $250,000 for contracts to support Child Support enforcement activities, including support for process servers, multimedia, location tool, software licenses and support, equipment, and temporary staff.  This action will also amend the Budget to allow the County to hire staff to support the Child Support Court Team, rather than contracting for those services. The total appropriation for this action is $482,600 and will increase the total appropriated to the Special Revenue fund to $915,879 in FY19.
