Intentional program violation of CCAP is fraud and can result in a criminal conviction and loss of services and payments.

Intentional means misinforming the program purposefully to receive services and/or payment for services.

Parents may commit fraud by failing to report changes that affect a program benefits, such as:

  • income changes - per hour rate or number of hours;

  • change of address.
