SANCTION NOTICE FOR MINOR CAREGIVER

ISSUE DATE: 12/2014

MFIP:
Send an MFIP Notice of Intent to Sanction (DHS-3175) (PDF) to a minor caregiver who is out of compliance with MFIP Employment Services (MFIP-ES) or education requirements. See 0012.06 (Requirements for Caregivers Under 20), 0028.12 (Education Requirements). MFIP-ES staff usually send the Notice of Intent to Sanction. However, in the case of a minor caregiver whose plan to attend school is developed by a social worker, your agency must decide who will send the Notice and make the determination of compliance or non-compliance. If the caregiver takes no action within the required time frame (at least 10 days from the mailing of the notice), the designated county person will notify you of the lack of action via the DWP/MFIP Status Update Form (DHS-3165) (PDF). At that time, send a Notice of Adverse Action (NOAA) or apply the appropriate sanction if a NOAA is not required.

The Notice of Intent to Sanction does the following:

Specifies requirements not complied with.

Informs that a sanction will be imposed unless action is taken within the specified time frame (at least 10 days from the mailing of the notice of intent).

Informs that good cause reasons for not complying should be reported to the job counselor.

Provides information about the option to request a conciliation conference and a fair hearing.

States that continuing non-compliance could result in additional sanctions including case closure.


A caregiver has at least 10 calendar days from the mailing of the notice to come into compliance or request a conciliation conference. A caregiver may request a fair hearing upon receipt of the Notice of Intent to Sanction without exercising the conciliation option. If no action is taken within the specified time frame (at least 10 days), you will receive a Status Update form. You must then send a MAXIS Notice of Adverse Action when required.

When a minor caregiver who is not involved with a job counselor requests a conciliation conference, the social worker who developed the education plan may conduct the conference. See CONCILIATION CONFERENCE in 0002.13 (Glossary: Conciliation...). If you receive a timely request, the conference must be conducted within 5 days of the request. A supervisor or designee must review the outcome of the conference. If conciliation resolves the non-compliance, withdraw the sanction notice. The Status Update form is used to notify you to impose or postpone a sanction or that the sanction is cured.


DWP:

Follow MFIP. Notify the caregiver that non-cooperation results in disqualification.


SNAP, MSA, GA, GRH:

No provisions.
