Building Capacity

RFA implementation requires building capacity of the organization to approach the  approval process is a new way. Counties should consider the need for offering training  for staff and caregivers, both current and prospective.  For staff, the Policies and  Protocols toolkit can be accessed to develop training for RFA processes.  Additionally  CalSWEC will be developing training that the Regional Training Academies will be delivering, piloting in January 2016. 

Because RFA is a new process within the state of California, the CDSS has identified the State Training Requiremens for ALL resoruce families. The requirements are excerpted from the Written Directives and outline the pre-approval and post-approval requirements for RFA families. As counties create training materials, these requirements should be referenced to ensure compliance.
