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 4.6.6 (Authorized activities outside an Employment Plan).
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 126.96.36.199 (BSF priorities).
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 cooperate with child support at redetermination to continue receiving child care assistance.
