Transition Year Extension (TYE) was designed to provide continuous child care assistance to families who complete their 12 months of Transition Year (TY), continue to be eligible, but cannot be moved into Basic Sliding Fee (BSF) because your agency lacks funds and has a waiting list. Approve TYE and retain the family on the BSF waiting list as Priority 2. There is no time limit on TYE. TYE is available for the time necessary for families to be moved from the BSF waiting list into BSF child care. TYE families are not to be considered TY families.
While there is no time limit for a family to be on TYE, coverage under TYE ends if a family loses CCAP eligibility. When a family loses their eligibility for TYE and subsequently contacts the agency for continued assistance, the family:
If a case is scheduled to transfer from TY to TYE during a period of temporary ineligibility, the case should be considered eligible for TYE. Although MEC² suppresses the program switch due to the "temporarily ineligible" (TI) status, the family was given up to 90 days to become eligible for assistance and this status should take precedence. These cases should not be treated differently than a TY case that would have up to 90 days of TI and once again become TY eligible.
If BSF funds become available and there are no families in Priority 1, move TYE families into the regular BSF program. Families who have been in TYE the longest must be served first. See Chapter 4.3.12 (Basic Sliding Fee).
