(a) If a grantee determines that its grant award is not sufficient to provide full program benefits through the period of the grant agreement for all participating families, that there is insufficient money for new eligible families, or that there are insufficient child care providers within a community, the grantee shall establish a wait list.
(b) A wait list must prioritize eligible families for participation in the program with (1) the highest priority given to those families in which the parent is working or attending school; (2) followed by families in which the parent is seeking work. Within each of the two priority categories, families must be prioritized by lowest income for family size based on the monthly income calculated under 4 AAC 65.301 and family size using the family income and contribution schedule set under 4 AAC 65.311.
(c) A grantee that has established a wait list shall add eligible families to each specified category in (b) of this section as described in (b) of this section.
(d) If all other priorities are equal, families shall be prioritized on a wait list by date of program application, with the longest standing application receiving highest priority.
(e) A family who is on a wait list in one community may transfer to a wait list in another community, maintaining the original date of the family's program application.
(f) A family who is a participant in the program in one community may transfer to a program in another community, maintaining the original date of the family's program application.
(g) To be placed on or maintained on a wait list or secondary list, a family must meet all program eligibility requirements.
(h) The following individuals will not be placed on a wait list, but will immediately receive benefits upon eligibility determination:
(1) a new child of a participating family;
(2) a child with special needs;
(3) a child with parents who are less than 20 years of age and who are enrolled in a high school completion program; and
(4) a child of a family who has left a temporary assistance program within the last 12 months because of employment.
(i) On the date that a grantee begins to process the wait list established under (a) of this section, the grantee shall close the wait list and place families determined eligible for participation in the program on or after that date on a secondary list, until the grantee has processed the wait list. After the grantee has processed the wait list, a grantee shall add families that have been placed on the secondary list within the past 12 months to the wait list according to the criteria for priorities set out in (b) of this section.
