DD Guardian Subsidy Payments
 
(01/01/19 - 12/31/19)
The Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) Guardianship Subsidy Program provides a subsidy payment for children who are placed in the care of a Legal Permanent Guardian (LPG). Consider the subsidy payment as income of the child. Treat the subsidy payment as follows:
 
For CA, guardian subsidy payments are not countable as income.
 
Key the GS FO Unearned Income Code in the INC TYP field on UNIC.
For NA, guardian subsidy payments are not countable as income when the child is not included in the NA budgetary unit. When the child is not included in the budgetary unit, consider the child a Boarder.
 
When the child is included in the NA budgetary unit of the LPG, the subsidy payment is countable as income.
 
Key the GS FI Unearned Income Code in the INC TYP field on UNIC next to the child for whom the payment is intended. (See Budgeting Guardian Subsidy Payments).
