EligibilitySpecial circumstances.

(1) A legal guardian or individual acting in loco parentis may be eligible for WCCC benefits based on participation in approved activities without consideration of the legal guardian's or individual's acting in loco parentis spouse or live-in partner's availability to provide care if the spouse or live-in partner is not named on the permanent custody order.
(a) Eligibility will be determined under this subsection based on the following:
(i) The consumer's work or approved activities schedule;
(ii) The child's need for care;
(iii) The child's income; and
(iv) Family size based on the number of children under guardianship and needing care.
(b) The consumer's spouse or live-in partner is not eligible to receive subsidized child care payments as a child care provider for the child.
(2) At application and reapplication:
(a) A consumer may be eligible for WCCC benefits if the consumer is a parent in a two-parent family and one parent is not able or available as defined in WAC 110-15-0003 to provide care for the children while the other parent is working or participating in approved activities.
(b) If a consumer claims one parent is not able to care for the children due to a medical condition, the consumer must provide written documentation from an acceptable medical source, as defined in WAC 388-449-0010, that states the:
(i) Reason the parent is not able to care for the children;
(ii) Expected duration and severity of the condition that keeps the parent from caring for the children; and
(iii) Treatment plan if the parent is expected to improve enough to be able to care for the children. The parent must provide evidence from a medical professional showing he or she is cooperating with treatment and is still not able to care for the children.
(3) A consumer may be eligible for WCCC if the consumer is participating in an approved activity needed to remove a sanction penalty or to reopen the consumer's WorkFirst case.
(4) A consumer whose application for TANF has not yet been approved, may be authorized for WCCC benefits for fourteen days pending establishment of an individual responsibility plan (IRP) with an approved activity. The fourteen days counts as part of the twelve-month eligibility period.
(5) A consumer who has an established IRP under WAC 110-15-0040 may be approved for WCCC benefits fourteen days before the start date of the activity. The fourteen days counts as part of the twelve-month eligibility period.
