ISSUE DATE: 01/2015

MFIP, DWP, SNAP, MSA, GRH:
No provisions.


GA:

People under the age of 18 who are not members of a family have a GA basis of eligibility if they meet 1 of the following conditions:

They are legally emancipated. Consider a minor who has been married, or is on active duty in the uniformed services of the United States, or has been declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be legally emancipated.

OR

They are at least age 16 and the director of the county agency or the director's representative approves GA as part of a social service case plan.

OR

They live with an adult with the written consent of an agency acting as legal custodian. The consent of the agency MUST be in writing.

OR

They live with an adult with the written consent of a legal custodian and the written consent of the county agency. The consent of the legal custodian and the agency MUST be in writing.


Refer ALL non-emancipated minor applicants who are not members of a family to social services for assessment. The county MUST assure appropriate referrals to Child Protection, Child Support and Northstar Care for Children have been made. See FAMILY in 0002.23 (Glossary: Fair Hearing...). If social services develops a case plan for a minor, open GA for the minor with a Minor Standard and continue GA payment as long as the minor is in compliance with the provisions of the plan.

If a minor applicant fails or refuses to cooperate with the social services agency in developing a case plan, deny the application.
