See PM 03-13-01 for activity compliance requirements.

When doing the Family Assessment or revising the Responsibility and Services Plan, determine whether the client meets the criteria for referral to a service provider.

If they meet the criteria and the service provider has an opening, make the referral. If they don't meet the criteria or there are no openings, the Family Community Resource Center determines the activity with the client and provides all follow-up services.

Provide the client with the following general information about work and training participation during the assessment or review:

  • an overview of work and training activities;
  • exemption and barrier policy;
  • available and appropriate work and training activities;
  • benefits available when employment is obtained, such as Work Pays and the Earned Income Tax Credit;
  • supportive services;
  • good cause and reconciliation; and
  • penalties for noncooperation with the activity requirement.

Consider the following factors before including an activity in the client's plan:

  • level of education and English language skills;
  • ability to meet participation requirements;
  • training or skill needs;
  • emergency intervention (e.g., lack of food, clothing, shelter, etc.). For emergency intervention services, refer the client or help them apply for the Crisis Assistance Program (see PM 06-03-00).
