Minor parents’ eligibility to receive assistance and support services
(1) A person who is a minor parent of a child and is receiving or applying for aid shall reside with the person’s parent, parents or legal guardian. The person may substitute an alternative supervised living arrangement if the Department of Human Services determines that it is unsafe or impractical for the person to reside with the person’s parent, parents or legal guardian. Failure of a minor parent applying for or receiving temporary assistance for needy families to reside with the person’s parent, parents or legal guardian or in an alternative supervised living arrangement shall result in the termination of aid.
(2) The provisions of subsection (1) of this section shall not apply to an applicant for or recipient of temporary assistance for needy families when circumstances or conditions exist that the department by rule establishes are not in the best interest of the child.
(3) If a person who is a minor parent receiving aid and who is not living with the person’s parent, parents or legal guardian subsequently returns to reside with the parent, parents or guardian and is determined ineligible to receive aid by reason of the parent’s or guardian’s income, the minor parent shall be eligible to receive such services, including medical care, as the department determines are necessary to allow the minor parent to attain a high school diploma or the equivalent, or to participate in the job opportunity and basic skills program as described in ORS 412.009 (Engagement in JOBS).
