Children who are in temporary DCFS custody under Norman remain eligible for TANF for up to 6 months after the month they were removed from the home. The absent child is not eligible to remain in the SNAP unit.
Review eligibility every 3 months, or more often if a change is expected.
At case review, if DCFS expects to return the children within 180 days of their removal, they remain eligible for TANF.
If the child is not expected to (or does not) return to the home within 180 days after the date of removal:
