Applications for residents of Residential Child Care Institutions (RCCIs)

Each child residing in an RCCI is considered a household of one. An application is completed for each child unless the RCCI uses an eligibility documentation sheet for all children residing in the RCCI.

The RCCI eligibility documentation sheet must be signed by an appropriate official and include:

  • Child’s name,
  • Personal income received by the child,
  • Child’s date of birth,
  • Date of admission,
  • Date of release,
  • Official’s title, and
  • Official’s contact information.

Children attending but not residing in an RCCI are considered members of the household where they reside. Their eligibility is determined using a household application or through direct certification.
