Delaware Health and Social Services (“Department”) / Division of Social Services initiated proceedings to amend the Division of Social Services Manual (DSSM) regarding the Child Care Subsidy Program, specifically, Determining High School/GED Eligibility Participation and Determining Post-Secondary Eligibility Participation. The Department’s proceedings to amend its regulations were initiated pursuant to 29 Delaware Code Section 10114 and its authority as prescribed by 31 Delaware Code Section 512.
The Department published its notice of proposed regulation changes pursuant to 29 Delaware Code Section 10115 in the November 2013 Delaware Register of Regulations, requiring written materials and suggestions from the public concerning the proposed regulations to be produced November 30, 2013 at which time the Department would receive information, factual evidence and public comment to the said proposed changes to the regulations.
The proposal described below amends policies in the Division of Social Services Manual (DSSM) regarding the Child Care Subsidy Program, specifically, Determining High School/GED Eligibility Participation and Determining Post-Secondary Eligibility Participation.
45 CFR §98.20, A child’s eligibility for child care services
The Child Care Subsidy Program is available to eligible families while the parents/caretakers attend education programs. Amended DSSM 11003.7.5, Income Eligible/Education and Post-Secondary Education Determining High School/GED Eligibility and NEW DSSM 11003.7.5, Determining Post-Secondary Eligibility and Participation are proposed to clarify eligibility determinations for subsidized child care services for parents/caretakers who attend high school or GED program or post-secondary education program. The proposed rule change simplifies the language that DSS expects the course of instruction will lead to employment by removing the examples and further clarifies that parents/caretakers who already have a Bachelor’s degree or higher are not eligible for subsidized child care services.
Agency Response: DSS accepts the recommendation and thanks the Councils for their endorsement.
THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED, that the proposed regulation to amend the Division of Social Services Manual (DSSM) regarding the Child Care Subsidy Program, specifically, Determining High School/GED Eligibility Participation and Determining Post-Secondary Eligibility Participation is adopted and shall be final effective January 10, 2014.
1. DSS Requires Parents/Caretakers Meet Certain Eligibility Criterion
1. DSS Requires Parents/Caretakers Seeking A Degree Meet Certain Criterion.
