A job search period is a valid need for participants who have an active Child Care Subsidy case. A parent may use job search as a need for ninety (90) days or until the last day of the month in which the ninetieth (90) day falls as long as the parent continues to meet other eligibility requirements. The parent may not use multiple need losses to count towards a longer job search period.
Verification of Job Search
If a parent is using job search because of a recent job loss, verify the job loss from the source. If a parent is using job search because an education or training ended, you do not need to verify the source.
Authorizing Job Search
If the parent is participating in job search, authorize child care based on the parent’s need for day time units only. Authorize up to ninety (90) days or the last day of the month which the ninetieth (90) day falls.
