Cost Allocation Methodology Applicable to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program
The Administration for Children and Families proposes to regulate the cost allocation methodology to be used in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. The proposed rule would require States to use the ``benefiting program'' cost allocation methodology required by OMB Circular A-87 (2 CFR Part 225) and previously required under HHS' Office of Grants and Acquisition Management (OGAM) Action Transmittal (AT) 98-2.
Child Support Enforcement Program; Medical Support
These proposed regulations would revise Federal requirements for establishing and enforcing medical support obligations in child support enforcement program cases receiving services under title IV-D of the Social Security Act (the Act). The proposed changes would: require that all support orders in the IV-D program address medical support; redefine reasonable-cost health insurance; require health insurance to be accessible, as defined by the State; and make conforming changes to the Federal substantial-compliance audit and State self-assessment requirements.
