Child Only Cases – Pascua Yaqui Tribal TANF
 
(01/01/22 - 12/31/22)
A dependent child may receive Pascua Yaqui (PY) Tribal TANF benefits when residing with a nonparent caretaker relative (NPCR(g)). A PY NPCR must be an adult who is capable and responsible for the care, control, and supervision of the dependent child.
 
When the PY Tribal TANF budgetary unit consists of only a child, all of the following apply:
 
The budgetary unit must meet all other PY Tribal TANF program requirements.
The child must be an enrolled PY Tribal member to be potentially eligible for PY Tribal TANF.
The NPCR must be related to the child by blood (no limit to the degree of relationship) or by Tribal customs and/or traditions.
The NPCR is required to comply with PY Yoemem Organization for Employment and Member Enhancement (YOEME) Services Compliance Office prior to TANF approval. (See PY YOEME Services Compliance Office)
