[REPEALED] Aid to Families With Dependent Children (AFDC) Program - Deprivation Due to the Incapacity of a Parent [22 VAC 40 ‑ 490]
Guidance Documents
Chapter Information
Description Eligibility for assistance in the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program is based on a child being deprived of parental support and care by reason of the death, continued absence, or incapacity of at least one parent. When determining if a child is deprived based on a parent's incapacity, federal regulations require that the limited employment opportunities of handicapped individuals be evaluated to ascertain if such limited employment opportunities impede the parent from providing for the child's support. This regulation expands upon Virginia's program policy to require local eligibility staff to evaluate the limited employment opportunities of handicapped individuals when making a determination as to whether a child is deprived, thereby ensuring program compliance with federal regulation.
