4.3.3.18 DWP Non-Compliance

ISSUE DATE: 12/2017

When a family is not in compliance with DWP Employment Services, their DWP case closes. If a family’s DWP case closes, assess the family’s eligibility for Transition Year (TY). If the family received DWP for three of the last six months, the family is eligible for TY. The family does not need to meet minimum activity requirements. See Chapter 4.3.6.3 (TY authorized activities).

  • · If the family is participating in an eligible TY activity, even if they are not meeting minimum activity requirements, continue the family’s authorization until their next redetermination.
  • · If the family is not participating in an eligible TY activity or activity participation is unknown, put the client into Extended Eligibility. Care should continue at the same level for up to three months or until the family’s next redetermination. See Chapter 9.15.6 (Extended Eligibility) for more information.
  • If the family has not received DWP for three of the last six months, the family is not eligible for TY. Assess eligibility for BSF. See Chapter 4.3.6 (Transition Year (TY)), Chapter 4.3.12 (Basic Sliding Fee (BSF)) and Chapter 4.3.12.9 (BSF priorities).

  • · If the family is participating in an eligible BSF activity, even if they are not meeting minimum activity requirements, continue the family’s authorization until their next redetermination.
  • · If the family is not participating in an eligible BSF activity or activity participation is unknown, put the client into Extended Eligibility. Care should continue at the same level for up to three months or until the family’s next redetermination.
  • Non-cooperation with child support

    During the 12 month eligibility period, if a DWP case closes for failure to cooperate with child support, the family can continue receiving child care until their redetermination under TY if they received DWP for three of the last six months. For families not receiving DWP for three of the last six months, assess eligibility for BSF. Families do not need to meet TY or BSF minimum activity requirements until their next redetermination.

    The family must cooperatie with child support at redetermination to continue receiving child care assistance.
