  Section  1. Subdivision 2 of section 355.1 of the family court act, as
amended by section 8 of subpart A of part G of chapter 57 of the laws of
2012, is amended to read as follows:
  2. An order issued under section 353.3,  may,  upon  a  showing  of  a

settings  as part of an approved juvenile justice services close to home
initiative pursuant to section four hundred four of the social  services
law,  beginning  on  the  effective  date  of that plan, if the district
determines that placement in a limited secure  facility  is  appropriate
and  consistent  with  the  need for protection of the community and the
needs and best interests of the respondent placed  into  its  care,  the
social  services  district shall file a petition to transfer the custody
of the respondent to the office of children  and  family  services,  and
shall  provide  a  copy of such petition to such office, the respondent,
the attorney for the respondent, THE PRESENTMENT AGENCY and the respond-
