Employable applicants/participants are required to participate in a work-related activity in order to receive public assistance. Child care must be in place before applicants/participants are assigned to work activities. If child care is needed, parents/guardians have the responsibility to locate a child care provider. Any parent/guardian who refuses child care without good cause, after the JOS/Worker has provided a minimum of two licensed provider referrals with verified vacancies, will be given a work assignment.
