SUBJECT: Implementation Instructions for Poverty Level Changes Effective April 1, 2019
This year the monthly gross income amounts will be updated on the Child Care Family Income and Share Schedule to reflect changes in the federal poverty guidelines and the state median income levels effective April 1, 2019. The tables were updated with the January KEES release on January 27th, and the changes are effective April 1, 2019. Prior to 2018, this poverty level change was dependent on staff taking action within our legacy systems. This year for the second time, KEES will look at all active Child Care programs, recalculate their Family Plans with a Type of ‘FP’ and Change Reason of ‘Other Change Reason’, and run EDBC for the Come-Up Month. These actions mimic that of a caseworker–NOAs and Family Plans will go out based on EDBC results.
Programs that have an overridden EDBC will not be processed by the batch process.
Timeline of Events:
This is very similar to last year’s schedule except that we don’t have converted family plans this year and we put the table updates in sooner this year.
