The filing group must have an allowable child care need as described in OAR 461 160 0040. If there are two adults required to be in the filing group, and one of the adults is unemployed, the unemployed adult is considered available to provide child care, making the filing group ineligible, except in the following situations:
A filing group not willing to show verification of immunizations, proof that the immunization series has started, or a copy of the medical or non-medical exemption form for the child is not eligible for a child care payment.
The child care must be necessary to enable the caretaker to remain employed, including self-employed.
A filing group is not eligible for child care when the caretaker or parent in the filing group receives a grant for child care from the Oregon Student Assistance Commission for any month the grant is intended to cover, regardless of when the grant is received.
