Temporary Assistance/Case Management Manual

0205.060.30.05 Physical Harm/No Evidence Available

If a claim is based on physical harm with no evidence available, determine good cause based on anticipation of physical harm. The applicant or Temporary Assistance (TA) participant is responsible for providing enough information to establish the claim and explain why no evidence is available. Conduct whatever investigation is needed to make the good cause determination.

After all attempts have been made to seek assistance from the applicant or TA participant to establish good cause and he/she is unwilling to assist, it will be necessary to follow sanction policy as outlined in 0205.060.35 Sanctions for Refusal to Cooperate.
