Active Protective Services cases should include the following child care documents in the Assessment and Services Section (Cover Sheet: Blue) of the child's case record.
NOTE: All authorizations for child care must be entered and approved by a supervisor in the FAMIS/FACES interface to a DSS compliant child care provider. Documents that can be retrieved from FAMIS (i.e. CD-150 and FF-155) are not required to be in the Protective Services file.
For active Income Maintenance cases in the FAMIS, the Child Care case record should include the following documents:
The case record shall be in the name of the parent or caretaker who is applying for child care services. The parent or caretaker is also responsible for reporting changes to FSD that may affect the eligibility status of the family unit.
NOTE: The IM-3 Changes You Must Report form is no longer required as of September 17, 2012.
Child Care cases are located in the head of household’s/participant’s county of residence. In instances where the Public Administrators, legal guardians, authorized representatives, etc. are in a county that is different than the participant’s residence county, these individuals may continue to work with the local office for their county, if they choose. Do not require these individuals to contact the county in which the participant resides to conduct FSD business, but treat the transaction (application, dropping off information, etc.) as a courtesy transaction. The county office with which the Public Administrator, legal guardian, or authorized representative does business then forwards the information to the appropriate county.
