Below please find the Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) Bulletin 3350-22-01, entitled “Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network Unit of Service Payment Rates and Programmatic Changes.” This bulletin rescinds and replaces the payment chart on page 3 of the Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) Bulletin 3350-21-02, titled “Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network Unit of Service Payment Rates and Programmatic Changes” and replaces the unit costs OCYF Bulletin “Fiscal Year 2023-24 Children, Youth and Families Needs-Based Plan and Fiscal Year 2022-23 Implementation Plan Instructions.”

The programmatic changes outlined in previous SWAN Unit of Service Payment Rates and Programmatic Changes bulletins remain in effect, while this bulletin includes the additional programmatic change of establishing a Family Matching unit of service.

The new SWAN payment rates established in this bulletin were developed as a result of actual cost and time data submitted by SWAN affiliate agencies from January 2021 – December 2021.  The new rates apply to all services referred on or after July 1, 2022.  Payment for any services referred prior to July 1, 2022, will be paid at the rate established for the year in which the referral was made. 

If you have any questions about the bulletin or payment rates, please contact Teresa Musser, Human Services Analyst Supervisor, OCYF’s Division of Programs, as outlined within the attached bulletin.
