Temporary Assistance/Case Management

0210.015.30.30 State Payment Of Child Care Costs

Budget only co-pay and/or sliding fee (if applicable) on child care received through a contracted provider or through voucher payments.

Only the amount a participant pays for child care and is NOT reimbursed is an allowable child care expense. Do not consider such reimbursement payments as income.

If a Temporary Assistance participant is approved for child care assistance, complete a budget and remove child care costs. If removal of the child care costs shows no need on the budget, discuss the following two available options with the family.

  1. The family may continue receiving child care assistance and the Temporary Assistance case will close; or
  2. The family can discontinue receiving child care assistance and the Temporary Assistance case remains open.
