Before a family can receive child care assistance, they must complete an application and meet eligibility requirements. The application must be signed and dated by at least one parent, step-parent, legal guardian or eligible relative caregiver who resides in the household.
Do not require a new application for a family moving from one child care sub-program to another when there is no interruption in service. See Chapter 4.3 (CCAP Subprograms).
If more than one CCAP family is living in the same household, each family must apply separately.
There are three ways a family can apply for child care assistance. The method the family uses depends on their situation and the program(s) they are applying for.
Your agency must have staff available during office hours to answer program questions and advise people of their right to file an application. See Chapter 3.3 (Assistance Requests).
Advise the person of his or her right to file an application, how and where to apply, and if necessary assist the person with the application. Give or mail the person an application. See Chapter 3.3 (Assistance Requests) for the list of forms and information to include in the application packet.
