Transitional Child Care (TCC) benefits are provided by the Department of Children and Families. These benefits are distinct from Child Care for Transitional Education and Training provided through the Local WAGES Coalition Service Providers. Both types of childcare can be available to the same participant. For a discussion of childcare related to Transitional Education and Training, refer to the topic Florida WAGES - Transitional Benefits. The following descriptions apply only to the Child Care (TCC) program administered by the Department of Children and Families.
There are two categories of Transitional Child Care (TCC) authorized by the Department of Children and Families: Transitional Child Care which does not meet the "3 of 6 month criteria" and Transitional Child Care which meets the "3 to 6 month criteria." Transitional Child Care (TCC) may be available for up to 2 years after a participant has been determined to be ineligible for Temporary Cash Assistance or if the participant "opts not to receive" due to earned income. Temporary Cash Assistance from another state may count for two of the three months required. The childcare authorization is made by the Economic Self-Sufficiency public assistance specialist for an initial eligibility period of 90 days and covers the hours of employment plus reasonable transportation time. Subsequent care can be provided if funds are available and the client continues to meet eligibility requirements. Transitional Child Care (TCC) is only available to former WAGES Program recipients who were receiving Temporary Cash Assistance. These people must be employed, and either "opt not to receive" cash assistance or they must have become ineligible for cash assistance due to earned income. Childcare is payable for the hours of employment plus reasonable transportation time.
