Guidelines for Developing Local Plans
(1) The Local Commission will lead, coordinate and facilitate the development and preparation of a single Local Plan for coordinating community programs, strategies and services for children ages 0 through 18 and their families. The purpose of the Local Plan is to create positive outcomes for children and families, mobilize communities, and coordinate programs, strategies and services among community groups, government agencies, private providers and other entities.
(2) The local planning process will follow a format contained in a document prescribed by the State Commission. The Planning Guide document may be obtained by contacting the Agency office.
(3) The Local Plan will be approved by the local BOCC prior to submitting the plan to the Agency. Counties will submit their Plans to the Agency for review and approval on a timetable established by the Agency.
(4) Submission of a county's Local Plan and proposed budget distribution will be considered the application for the county allocation of funds appropriated to the Agency. Counties that submit a one-year budget must submit a second-year budget prior to the beginning of the second year of the biennium which will be considered the county allocation application for the second year.
(5) The proposed budget distribution will identify the applicable portion(s) of the Local Plan for each funding area represented in the budget.

Categorization and Limitation of Local Commission Costs
(1) Basic Capacity:
(a) The State Commission determines a biennial allocation of funds to assist Local Commissions in the costs associated with functions related to the Local Commission office.

(B) A review is completed by the Agency of past performance of the Local Commission, including meeting timelines, monitoring and compliance requirements, and quality of plans and outcomes.
(C) A written description is provided to the Agency that demonstrates that there is no real or perceived conflict of interest or conflict with ORS 417.775(2) (a), which prohibits Local Commissions from providing direct services.
(D) Letters or other form of written communication that supports the waiver request are provided from community partners from formal and informal systems that work regularly with the Local Commission in accomplishing its work.
(E) Written evidence of the Local Commission recommendation and BOCC support.

(b) Service provider contracts: Counties may allocate funds to providers for the cost of services or activities to children and families, however all services or activities must be identified in the Local Plan.
(c) Services and programs funded by another federal or state funding source cannot be funded with OCCF dollars when blending of those funds are not allowed by state or federal agreements or when duplication will occur.
(d) County Indirect/Direct Cost Assessment: Counties may assess direct and indirect charges from the Basic Capacity funding stream at an assessment no higher than 10 percent of the total annual Local Commission allocation from the Agency less funding streams expressly disallowed by state or federal statute or rule. This rule is subject to monitoring and review by the Agency.
(6) A Local Commission may not provide direct services as defined in OAR 423-001-0006(11). However a Local Commission may provide direct services for children, youth or families for a period not to exceed six months under conditions determined in ORS 417.775(2)(a) through (b).

Youth are considered chronically acting out when they are exhibiting school behavior problems, are out of parental control, are runaway and homeless, or are exhibiting other risk factors. Youth are non-delinquent if they have no history of, or current involvement with, the juvenile justice system, or have been diverted from the juvenile justice system. Youth who have been referred to a juvenile department for a criminal activity, or who have been placed on an informal accountability agreement are not considered to be non-delinquent for purposes of this funding.

(b) Service Areas: Relief Nurseries are community-based organizations that seek to prevent the cycle of child abuse and neglect through early intervention programs that focus on developing successful and resilient children, strengthening family skills of parents or caregivers, and preserving families. Relief Nursery services are offered within a comprehensive and integrated early childhood and family support system to appropriately meet the needs of the individual family with children who have been abused or are at risk of child abuse and neglect. Relief Nurseries must include therapeutic early childhood education programs, home visitation and parent education and support. Relief Nursery services are voluntary, strength-based, culturally appropriate, and designed to achieve appropriate early-childhood benchmarks and healthy family functioning.
