You may be eligible for TCC benefits for up to 24 months if your TANF cash assistance has been terminated due to earnings from employment. N.J.A.C. 10:15-4.2. In this case, however, you must meet certain eligibility criteria, such as providing proof of your earnings, signing an agreement for services, and paying a co-payment for services. N.J.A.C. 10:15-4.2.
If you believe that you may be eligible for any of the benefits under TANF or WFNJ programs, you should contact your family service worker, call the Child Care Hotline at 800-332-9CARE, or contact your county Unified Child Care Agency (UCCA). See Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (CCR&Rs) (from the New Jersey Division of Family Development) for a list of these agencies.
