The purpose of Adoption Assistance Program (AAP) monitoring is to ensure administration of the AAP from eligibility determination to disbursement of benefits is in compliance with federal and state laws. It is the intent of the Department to act in an oversight role by providing monitoring feedback in the form of a findings report and technical assistance. Monitoring is the first step toward ensuring compliance with federal and state regulations and will assist counties with maintaining accurate AAP eligibility and AAP case. Technical assistance is available to counties upon request. If you have any questions regarding AAP monitoring please contact the county’s assigned AAP monitor to request assistance.
