Other Planned Permanent Living Arrangement (OPPLA) Law and Legal Definition
Other Planned Permanent Living Arrangement (OPPLA) is a permanency option in which the child welfare agency maintains care and custody responsibilities for and supervision of the child, and places the child in a setting in which the child is expected to remain until adulthood.
This might be with foster parents or relative caregivers who have made a commitment to care for the child permanently, or in a long-term care facility (for example: for children with developmental disabilities who require long-term residential care.). This term was created when the Adoption and Safe Families Act struck the term "long-term foster care" from statute. OPPLA (or APPLA) is selected only when reunification, adoption, legal guardianship, and relative placements have been determined to be inappropriate.
