.02 Nonparent Specified Relative – Hopi Tribal TANF
 
(01/01/17 –12/31/17)
A dependent child may receive Hopi Tribal TANF benefits when residing with a nonparent specified relative (NPSR). An NPSR is an adult who is capable and responsible for the care, control, and supervision of the dependent child.
 
The NPSR must be related to the child by blood (no limit to the degree of relationship) or by law.
 
The NPSR’s legal or biological relationship must be verified by a Court Order, Relative Placement Order or a Statement from a Kikmongwi (Village Leader).
 
The child must be placed in the NPSR’s home by the Hopi Tribal Courts, Hopi Social Services, a Kikmongwi (Village Leader), or another Court of Law.
 
The NPSR must provide proof of the placement of the child in the home by the Hopi Tribal Courts, Hopi Social Services, a Kikmongwi (Village Leader), or another Court of Law.
 
The NPSR is an optional participant. When the NPSR is included in the Hopi Tribal TANF budgetary unit, their resources and income are countable.
