PARENT ELIGIBILITY FOR FAMILIES FIRST (FF) CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE

Table of Contents

 

FF certificates will be issued for a period not to exceed of 12 months.  Because client representatives are in regular contact with parents and work activity contractors, they are in a position to make changes to child care eligibility as needed based on compliance with the work requirements or other circumstances. 

 

In two-parent Families First households, if both parents do not have a work requirement, the second parent will be screened by the client representative  to determine if that person is “available, capable and appropriate” to provide the child care in the home.  If the answer is “no” to any of these questions, then a FF certificate may be issued. 

 

Parents/caretakers who are exempt from work requirements, with the exception of Child Only caretakers, illegal aliens and SSI recipients, may receive child care assistance if they choose to volunteer for work activities.
