Binti supports California-based agency requirements for completing the RFA 181. In addition to the information below, please refer to our California Quarterly Guide to learn more about how Binti calculates each field.
What data is displayed in this report by default?
The report will default to the most recently completed quarter:
- January 1st to March 31st
- April 1st to June 30th
- July 1st to September 30th
- October 1st to December 31st
What is reported on the Binti 181 report?
- If the withdraw reason is set as any other option, these families will be counted as “Other” in Part A, Line 3, Section E.
- Pending cases are cases where the applicant(s) has signed the RFA 01A and the case has not been approved, denied, or withdrawn.
- Resolved cases are any cases where the RFA 01A has been signed, and the case has been approved, denied, or withdrawn.
- Inactive cases are counted in the total number of resource family homes
- Conversion homes are not counted in the total number of resource family homes
- Cases that were withdrawn with the withdraw reason set as “Caregiver chose to withdraw themselves” are the only cases counted as “Withdrawn” in Part A, Line 3, Section C
What about transfers and ports?
- We’re not accounting for these families separately on the 181 report at this time.
- Binti does count these as resource family homes in the total number of resource family homes, so please consider these families when reconciling our report.
- Binti cannot cannot intake caregivers onto a renewal template, so if a caregiver is received post-approval, they will likely need to be taken into consideration as an adjustment when reconciling our report.
Adjustments/continuity between quarters
The report should be consistent with the following information:
- The section in Part A > Line 1 for the current quarter
- Our report allows for adjustments - this is usually backdated information
- The report should be consistent with the following information:
- The section in Part A > Line 4 for the previous quarter
What does Binti mean by “Suspicious Applications?”
- Were historical information added into Binti (backdated)
- Have been merged by Binti’s Customer Support team
- Status changes that have made an application go from a pending to resolved case
- Ex: an application goes from Applying > Withdrawn > back to Applying
- Ex: an application goes from Withdrawn > Applying > back to withdrawn
- Any applications that make the above sections’ numbers inconsistent between quarters will appear for your review under the Suspicious Applications section on the report
- Applications/cases may be considered suspicious if they
