Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022
criteria for determination and re-determination of the co-payment shall be
determined as specified in the chapter Appendix, the Client Income Eligibility
and Co-payment Schedule, incorporated herein by reference, in accordance with
1. Family size, which shall
consist of the parent/applicant, the parent's or applicant's spouse and all
children for whom the parent/applicant is a legal guardian in the same
household. Family size shall also include dependent children who are over the
age of 18 or other adults who are not legally responsible for the children but
who are dependent upon the parent/applicant and who live in the same household
if the parent/applicant so chooses to include these family members in the
application for child care services;
WFNJ participants who are employed shall
be required to contribute toward the cost of child care services provided on
their behalf. This co-payment shall be assessed based on earned income only.
Participants who are eligible to receive transitional child care benefits in
accordance with eligibility requirements at
shall also contribute
toward the cost of child care services;
3. Family income for NJCK shall include all
gross income received by all members of the family unit defined in (a)1 above.
The gross annual family income amount shall be verified by wage stubs or
similar documentation as a condition of receiving child care benefits;
For all DFD voucher
payments, the number of hours child care services are being provided to the
child shall be a follows:
i. Full-time care is
defined as care for 30 hours or more per week for co-payment
ii. Part-time care is
defined as care for less than 30 hours per week for co-payment purposes;
iii. In no case shall the
co-payment exceed the cost of care.
Once the co-payment is determined, it
shall remain unchanged for the duration of the eligibility period (up to 12
months) unless there is a change in family size, gross family income or a
change in care from full-time to part-time or vice versa. For the DFD voucher
programs, the participant shall notify the CCRR of any changes occurring in the
family related to family size, income, work status or training/educational
program attendance. The CCRR shall then determine any changes in the co-payment
based on reported circumstances affecting co-payment calculation. For DFD
contracted child care centers, the center shall recalculate the co-payment
following any reported changes by the parent.
1. In NJCK and TCC, an exception shall be
made in the case of co-payment for school-age children. The CCRR shall
determine a part-time co-payment in accordance with (a) above, for all
school-age children, unless the school-age child is in full-time child care for
the entire period of the 12 month agreement. Only in this instance, the
co-payment determination shall be based on the full-time arrangement.
