Chapter 67:47:01. Child Care Services

The effects of these rules will be to include within the definition of a “relative provider” a caretaker who is a sibling of the child, rather than including such a sibling within the definition of “informal provider”, to establish that 15 semester credit hours at a college, university or technical institute is sufficient to meet the eligibility requirements for work and education to receive child care assistance, and to increase the time period during which a recipient must notify the department of a change in child care providers. The rules are being amended to more appropriately reference care by a sibling and to clarify school eligibility and reporting requirements.

New content is added below as the draft rules move through the rule-making process.
