be eligible for CCDBG if they are in need of child care services in order to
remain employed or accept full-time employment or to attend full-time
educational and/or work/training programs. For initial program entry, the
annual gross income of the family shall not exceed 200 percent of the Federal
Poverty Level Guidelines for a family of the same size. Following the initial
determination, child care services shall continue until the gross annual income
of the family exceeds 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines,
adjusted for family size. Since the priority code 8 children who come through
the CCDBG/CPS funding stream represent the most severe cases of abuse/neglect,
these cases only shall not be required to adhere to the 200 percent entry level
requirement, but shall be ranked according to the following CCDBG Admission
"08": Children identified
by the CP & P as abused or neglected and in need of protective services.
Families who are eligible to receive a
subsidy or be placed on a waiting list under this priority are as follows:
(1) CP & P At-Home: These families are
not required to need child care services to accept or maintain employment
full-time or be enrolled in a school or training program.
(2) Out of home placement: These families are
required to need child care services to accept or maintain employment full-time
or be enrolled in a school or training program.
ii. In both instances, in (a)1i(1) and (2)
above, the CCR & R shall verify if the family is an active CP & P case,
via the process outlined in their affiliation agreement, with the appropriate
Area Office. The affiliation agreement shall address verification procedures
for this population as well as the CCDBG/CPS population.
"09": Children in families with incomes at
or below 200 percent of Federal Poverty Level for initial entry in to the
program and 250 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines for continued
eligibility and where the parent (one parent in single parent families or both
parents in two parent families) works full-time who do not fall in priorities
01 through 06. The parent(s) must need child care services in order to accept
or remain in full-time employment. Parents working full-time or part-time or in
a full-time training or education program and who do not fall into priority 08
in (a)1 above shall not be eligible. This priority is further delineated as
Children identified as having
special needs and/or circumstances, that is, in
, a child that is not under the CP
& P supervision who has been identified through a written referral from a
county welfare agency; legal, medical, or social service agency; emergency
shelter; or public school which indicates that the child is from a family
experiencing medical or social problems or adverse living conditions. Such
children require child care arrangements to help ameliorate the situation
and/or prevent the placement of the child or other family member(s) outside the
home. Parents must need child care services in order to remain in full-time
employment or in a full-time training/education program.
ii. Children identified as a child of a teen
parent enrolled and referred by a school-based youth services program or a teen
parent who has remained in school and is therefore ineligible for WFNJ/TANF
transitional or like benefits shall be considered as having special
circumstances and shall receive this priority consideration.
iii. Children in families with incomes at or
below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level and do not fall into priority 08
in (a)1 above. Parents must need child care services in order to remain in
full-time employment or full-time training/education program.
(b) The applicant shall
report changes in circumstances that affect continued eligibility or level of
benefit to the CCR & R.
Families shall make the required co-payment in accordance with N.J.A.C.
(d) If the participant
loses a job, eligibility terminates unless he or she then finds another job
within one month of the job loss.
