Table of Contents

 

Situations in which a parent is temporarily out of the home due to military deployment (either foreign or domestic) do not change the childís eligibility status.Family members or non-related individuals who have temporary care and control of the child may continue to receive child care assistance to prevent a disruption in the care, preserve the slot with the child care provider, and lessen the anxiety of the deployed parent.

 

        This policy applies to any child care eligibility.

 

        Any redetermination should be postponed until the eligible parent returns from duty.

 

        Any parent fees determined on the parentís income will be continued at the same fee.

 

        The case should stay in the parentís name if possible with the address of any new location for the child changed if needed.
