The CCAA has made an announcement regarding the process in which families will be able to lock in files of children on the shared list.
From the statement, the CCAA addresses the frustration of agencies to be able to lock in files for families already LID, due to the overwhelming traffic when a new shared list is released. In order to relieve some of the backlog of families waiting to be matched who are already LID, the CCAA is now enforcing a policy that LID only families have preference when a new shared list is released. Only LID families will be allowed to lock in a child who has been on the shared list for less than a month.
Additionally, up to 72 hours may be allowed for potential families to decide whether or not to permanently lock a child’s file.
