In an action challenging California's scheme of reimbursement to foster care homes, summary judgment for defendants is reversed where California was not in "substantial compliance" with the federal Child Welfare Act's (CWA) mandate that a participating state "cover the cost" of certain enumerated items for foster care group homes because it paid at a rate that was approximately 80 percent of actual 1986-1987 costs adjusted for inflation, and the CWA required California to pay in full.
