Does a participant's eligibility end?

For WIOA Youth eligibility continues through follow-up services unless a participant fails to meet the selective service requirement once enrolled.  For TANF eligibility, a participant receiving OWF remains eligible. If they are not receiving OWF, eligibility must be recertified every six months. However, if the agency knows a participant's circumstances have changed causing the participant to no longer be eligible, the agency must redetermine eligibility at that time. For example, if a participant is placed in a job with income above 200% FPL, then the agency knows the participant's income is too high and must act. Please note turning 25 years of age does not impact eligibility for continued enrollment. (See OAC rule 5101:14-1-04, and OAC rule 5101:10-3-01 for more information).
