Each child, as defined in K.A.R. 30-4-70, shall meet the eligibility requirements set forth below. In addition, if the child of an FFP-FC recipient and the FFP-FC recipient are living together in the same foster care living arrangement, the recipient's child shall be deemed to meet the eligibility requirements of the FFP-FC program.

(a) General eligibility requirements. Each child shall meet the general eligibility requirements of K.A.R. 30-4-50.
(b) Removed from the home of a relative. The child shall have been removed from the home of a relative as a result of a judicial determination, or the child shall have lived with the relative within six months before the month in which the proceedings were initiated and shall have been placed in a foster home or child care facility as a result of this determination.
(c) Child in need. The child's eligibility shall be determined on a calendar-month basis. Total budgetary requirements shall be compared with total applicable income. If there is a deficit, the child shall be determined to be in need if the child owns property with a value not in excess of allowable limits.
(d) Court order. A written order of commitment shall be issued giving the secretary care, custody, and control of the child.
(e) Case plan. The child shall have a case plan designed to achieve placement in the least restrictive setting available and in close proximity to the parents' home. The case plan shall be consistent with the best interest and special needs of the child.
(f) Administrative review. The child's status shall be reviewed periodically but not less than once every six months. The review shall be open to the participation of the parents of the child. The review shall be conducted by a panel of appropriate persons. The panel shall include at least one person who is not responsible for the case management of either the child or the parents under review. The administrative review shall determine the future status of the child including whether the child should be returned to the parent, continued in foster care for a specified period, placed for adoption, or continued in foster care on a permanent or long-term basis.
(g) Living arrangement. The child shall be living in a foster family home or a private, nonprofit child care facility. The home or facility shall be approved by the agency for placement.
