9.12 Authorization Changes During the 12 Month Eligibility Period

ISSUE DATE: 12/2017

Whether a change in activity will impact a family’s case depends on their reporting type. See Chapter 8.3.6 (Reporting types) for more information about determining a family’s reporting type.

12 month reporters

For 12 Month Reporters, authorization must continue at the same number of hours or more hours until redetermination, including when:

  • · The other parent moves in and is working, in school or has an approved Employment Plan.
  • · The other parent moves in and is not in an activity. See Chapter 9.15.6 (Extended Eligibility).
  • · A parent no longer meets minimum activity requirements but is still working.
  • · A parent temporarily stops working or attending an approved education program. Temporary changes include, but are not limited to, a medical leave, maternity/paternity leave, seasonal employment fluctuations, or a school break between semesters. See Chapter 9.15.3 (Care during temporary leaves of absence).
  • The CCAP agency may increase the amount of child care authorized at any time if the participant verifies the need for increased hours.

    The CCAP agency may reduce the amount of child care authorized only when:

  • · a parent requests a reduction
  • · the child’s school schedule changes, including when a child starts school
  • · the provider cannot provide the amount of care authorized.
  • · the custody schedule changes
  • See Chapter 7.4 (Verification – 12 month eligibility period) for verification requirements and Chapter 8.1.9 (Changes in activity) for eligibility impacts.

    Schedule reporters

    The amount of child care authorized must change when a parent’s activity schedule changes if the family is a Schedule Reporter.

    Follow instructions in Chapter 9.1 (Authorizing child care) and sub-chapters to adjust the authorized hours based on verified activity schedules.

    See Chapter 7.4 (Verification – 12 month eligibility period) for verification requirements and Chapter 8.1.9 (Changes in activity) for eligibility impacts.
