*The CSW has an obligation to make reasonable efforts to ensure that NMDs who want to participate in the EFC Program are provided with the appropriate tools and support to maintain their eligibility.  If there is a dispute between the NMD and DCFS as to whether the NMD is meeting one of the five EFC participation conditions, the juvenile court must make a finding as to whether or not the NMD is meeting the required conditions. This finding will be based upon whether or not the CSW, with the youth, created a reasonable TILCP.

**Medical condition must be supported by information documented in the Case Plan.

***If the NMD no longer resides in an eligible facility, payment will terminate under existing rules once court makes the determination that the NMD is not residing in eligible facility.

Extended Benefits for Nonminors
