Vermont Did Not Always Follow Federal Requirements in Claiming Title IV-E Training Costs

Executive Summary

In fiscal years 2008 through 2010, Vermont's Agency of Human Services, Department for Children and Families (State agency) did not always follow Federal requirements in claiming training costs at the University of Vermont's College of Education and Social Services (the University). Specifically, the State agency improperly claimed $213,000 in University parent training costs that were allocated incorrectly to the Title IV-E training program and $29,000 in University education and State respite care costs that were not related to the Title IV-E training program. As a result, the State agency overstated the Federal share of foster care and adoption assistance training costs by $242,000.
