Citation: 2 N.J.A.R. 23
Decision Date: 1979
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: Respondent received assistance under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program for herself and her two children. Her request for child care payments under the program to provide for the care for her three-year-old child while she attended college was denied by the local county welfare board. The board claimed that respondent had surplus income from an educational grant which should be used for child care payments. The administrative law judge found that the respondent had a surplus of $486 after deducting school-related expenses from the educational grant she received each semester. N.J.A.C. 10:82-1.8(a)1 provides that payment for child care expenses could be provided only if an educational grant did not provide funds which could be used for child care expenses. The judge concluded that the respondent had failed to demonstrate that the educational grant did not provide money which could be used for child care and accordingly the denial of assistance was affirmed.
