Review of New Jersey's Title IV-E Adoption Assistance Costs for Federal Fiscal Year 2006

Executive Summary

The Federal Government shares in the States' cost of adoption assistance for payments for children who meet supplemental security income requirements or other specific requirements. For Federal fiscal year 2006 (October 1, 2005, through September 30, 2006), New Jersey claimed adoption assistance payments for 5,237 children, totaling $34.7 million ($17.3 million Federal share), in Title IV-E adoption assistance payments on its Federal quarterly expenditure reports. We reviewed payments associated with the 100 children for whom the State received the highest dollar amounts (high-dollar payments).

Our review found that the State complied with Federal eligibility requirements in claiming high-dollar payments for Federal reimbursement. Therefore, we have no recommendations.
