12.3.12 Termination Notices - Family

ISSUE DATE: 04/2016

Provide at least 15 calendar days notice to families before terminating child care assistance except when adverse action notice requirements are waived. See Chapter 12.1 (15-Day Notice Requirements) for the two exceptions.

Include the following in the written notice:

The effective date.

The reason for the termination.

The basis for your action in statute, rule or your County and Tribal Child Care Fund Plan.

The right to appeal, receive a fair hearing and the procedure for doing so.

Choices available if they choose to appeal:

-

Continue to receive child care assistance at the previous level while the appeal is pending, and be responsible for any overpayments that may result.

OR

-

Do not receive child care assistance, and potentially receive reimbursement for child care expenses incurred while the appeal is pending, if the family wins the appeal.

Do not terminate the case if the family appeals and chooses to continue to receive child care assistance.

If the reason for termination is the family’s move to another county, also include in the notice that the family may continue to receive child care assistance from the new county or tribe if they contact that county or tribe within 60 days of the move.

If the family’s case is being terminated because the family requested their case to be closed and the family changes their mind before the effective date of the termination, the termination must not take effect.

If the family’s case is being terminated because the family is no longer eligible for child care assistance and the family re-establishes eligibility before the effective date of the termination, the termination must not take effect.
