Applicants deemed eligible for or participants in receipt of Cash Assistance (CA) may choose to receive childcare ssistance/payments instead of CA (Childcare In Lieu of Cash Assistance [CILOCA]).
Parents/caretakers must work a designated minimum number of hours or earn a minimum dollar amount to be eligible for CILOCA. The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) sets these minimum requirements.
There is no time limit on receiving CILOCA if the household's income and resources remain within CA limits and the minimum hours/income requirement is met.
