DCFS identifies some families as Norman cases when the children are removed from the home (see PM 04-01-08). DCFS also identifies additional families as Norman cases when planning to return children to the home. The following instructions apply to Norman cases when DCFS returns a child to the home.
NOTE: If the child is not required to be in the case, have the client sign Request for Assistance for Additional Family Member (Form 243).
If the child does not have to be included in the case due to filing unit policy, send Notice of Decision on Request for Financial Assistance (Form 1934), to notify the client of the action. An absent child is not eligible to be included in the FS unit.
The Family Community Resource Center receives 2 copies of a monthly report titled "Norman Cases", with all active cases that have Item 80 code 173 NORMN. The BOS Norman liaison also receives a copy of the list. The cases are listed alphabetically by caseload, with the Case Number, Case Name, Address, Caseload, and Item 80 Code 173 Date (MM/YY) for each case. There are also blank columns with the headings Hearing Date, Decision, and Code 173 Updated/Deleted. Use the list to control and follow up on Norman cases (see WAG 04-01-08-c).
