Field Op 2002-18 Elimination of the Supplemental Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children (STAFDC) Program
DTA guidance eliminating supplemental TAFDC program as a result of legislative defunding. In this FO memo, DTA agrees that an LPR who is subject to the five year bar but is working and receiving TAFDC for a child is eligible for child care. Also, an ineligible noncitizen can volunteer for ESP and get child care for an approved activity. An LPR mom who is past the five year bar who choses to opt out of the TAFDC assistance unit (for example, due to sponsor deeming), should also be eligible for child care. The language of the child care guarantee certainly covers a parent who is working.
