Parents and other relatives eligible to receive child care services include relatives (other than parents) who receive child-only TANF benefits as a Representative Payee for children in need of care while they work.
A Representative Payee (RPY) case is a case in which only the child(ren) is the recipient of TANF cash assistance. Child Care Assistance received by a relative caretaker who works is considered a TANF benefit and is viewed differently than other child care services.
