Subprogram changes related to MFIP/DWP Child Care for Student Parents when there is a waiting list for Basic Sliding Fee (BSF) are described below.
As soon as BSF funding becomes available, families receiving MFIP/DWP Child Care for Student Parents must be approved for BSF child care if eligibility requirements are met.
When a family receiving MFIP/DWP child care for student parents while on the BSF waiting list as Priority 1 begins receiving MFIP or DWP cash benefits, the family should be approved for MFIP/DWP child care if all eligibility requirements are met. The family should be removed from the BSF waiting list if the family begins receiving MFIP or DWP cash benefits.
When a family moves from one county where they were receiving BSF to another county that has a BSF waiting list, the family must notify the new county within 60 days of the move. If at least one parent in the family is under age 21 and pursuing a high school or GED, the family will receive MFIP/DWP Child Care for Student Parents after the Unitary Residency period, if eligibility requirements are met, rather than portability pool funding. The family must be added to the new county’s BSF waiting list as Priority 1. See Chapter 188.8.131.52 (BSF Priorities).
