Oregon Department of Human Services, Self-Sufficiency Programs
Eligibility of Clients
Any participant not excluded from participation by law, if eligible for the TANF program, may volunteer to participate in the JOBS Plus program. If there are no volunteers available to participate, the Department may select participants from among eligible participants. Recipients of SSI and teenage parents who remain in high school, if they are making progress toward receiving a diploma, are exempt from participation in the JOBS Plus program.
Participants remain eligible to participate as long as they would, except for participating in the JOBS Plus program, be eligible for TANF.
The benefits of participants remain suspended until the first day of the month following the month in which they last perform work under a JOBS Plus agreement. TANF participants cannot receive TANF cash benefits and a JOBS Plus supplement for the same month.
