5.6 CCAP Family - Temporary Absence

ISSUE DATE: 06/2012

People may remain in a Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) family while temporarily absent under certain conditions. Children included in the CCAP household size may be considered temporarily absent from the household if they intend to return to the CCAP household. Continue to include these children in the CCAP household size. Do not authorize care for these children.

An adult included in the CCAP household size may be considered temporarily absent from the household if they intend to return to the CCAP household. An adult family member who is not in an authorized activity may be considered temporarily ab sent for up to 60 days. When the temporarily absent adult is not in an authorized activity and has been absent from the household for 60 days MEC2 will remove, the absent adult from the CCAP household, and will change household size. This may result in the need for child support cooperation. Children and temporarily absent adults who are in an authorized activity are not subject to the 60 day restriction. The CCAP worker must determine if the absent adult family member is in a CCAP authorized activity. The activity must be verified.

For more information on a CCAP family, see Chapter 2 (Glossary), Chapter 5.3 (Determining the CCAP Family), Chapter 5.9 (CCAP Family Composition Examples).

Family members attending schools away from the home.
