Child Care Subsidy: Temporary Absence

340:40-7-6 (c)

When a household member is out of the home due to a temporary absence, he or she is still considered a household member as long as he or she intends to return to the home.

Examples of temporary absence are:

  • Hospitalization
  • Incarceration
  • Attending school
  • Working or training away from home

When one parent is away from the home, care is only approved for the child during the times that both parents are meeting a need factor at the same time.
