8.6 Temporary Ineligibility

ISSUE DATE: 03/2017

When a family has been receiving child care assistance and a change makes them ineligible, AND you believe the ineligibility to be temporary and do not know when the temporary ineligibility will end, reserve the family’s position in CCAP. Such situations include:

  • · Participants who quit or have been laid off from employment, and have not yet found new employment. Temporary ineligibility status for this reason cannot exceed 90 days. When the 90th day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the timeframe for meeting all eligibility requirements is extended to the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.
  • · Students during breaks between sessions who do not have documentation verifying continued school registration. Temporary ineligibility status for this reason cannot exceed one academic quarter or semester as determined by the educational institution.
  • · Families whose increased income from active military service makes them ineligible. Continue temporary ineligibility status until the person is deactivated from military service.
  • In addition, your agency may reserve a family’s position in CCAP if the family:

  • · Reaches the top of the Basic Sliding Fee (BSF) waiting list.
  • AND
  • · Is temporarily ineligible.
  • Check your County and Tribal Child Care Fund Plan to determine whether your county or tribe has chosen this option. Follow the time periods established above for those families you reserve a position for, if the county or tribe has chosen this option.

    The agency must reserve a military family’s position on the BSF waiting list if the family is approved to receive CCAP and reaches the top of the waiting list but is temporarily ineligible for assistance.
