03 Specified Relative
A specified relative is one of the following:
 
Nonparents
Nonparents must be related to the dependent child as defined in Nonparent Caretaker Relatives(g) (NPCR).
When more than one NPSR lives in the home, only one NPSR can be included in the CA budgetary unit. The PI must decide which relative is to receive CA benefits.
Indicate on SPRD which NPSR is the CA specified relative by keying Y in the SPECIFY REL field next to the participant.
 
WARNING
When the child is in the custody of DCS, a Tribal Court or a Tribal Child Welfare Agency in Arizona and placed in the home of an unrelated foster care provider by DCS, a Tribal Court or a Tribal Child Welfare Agency in Arizona the specified relative requirement is met.
 
A specified relative must be living with and caring for a dependent child to be eligible for CA. (See Case Participation)
 
When either the specified relative or the dependent child is temporarily out of the home, see TEOA.
