AN ACT TO ENABLE THE STATE TO OBTAIN FEDERAL FINANCIAL PARTICIPATION IN AID TO DEPENDENT CHILDREN OF UNEMPLOYED PARENTS; APPROPRIATING FUNDS.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. During the period beginning May 1, 1961, and ending June 30, 1962, in addition to the definition of Aid to Dependent Children as contained in Title 31, § 504 (2), Delaware Code, the term "Aid to Dependent Children" shall also include aid granted with respect to a child under the age of 18 who has been deprived of parental support or care by reason of the unemployment (as defined by the Department of Public Welfare) of a parent and who is living with any of the relatives specified in Title 31, § 504 (2), Delaware Code, in a place of residence maintained by one or more of such relatives as his or their own home. If found feasible by, and in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Department of Public Welfare, the term "Aid to Dependent Children" shall also include, with respect to the period specified above, aid granted with respect to children who, while receiving aid in the home of a parent or such specified relative, are, after April 30, 1961, removed therefrom and placed in foster family homes because of a judicial determination that continuation in the parent's or relative's home would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Approved July 10, 1961.
