    Mandatory Job Club Classes

    2018 Class Schedule

     

    Tarrant County Housing Assistance Office (TCHAO) conducts mandatory classes for all zero income participants.  These classes are approximately 90 minutes and they apply to the head of household and all household members 18 years and older who are currently not working or in school full-time (12 hours).  Anyone who is disabled and/or elderly (58 years or older) or those in school full time are exempt from the meetings.  You are responsible for sending supporting documentation either by mail, fax or email showing that you meet one of these requirements of exemption.  Due to limited meeting space NO CHILDREN are allowed.  You will need to make necessary arrangements for their care during this time. Alternate Saturday classes are offered that permit you to bring your children.

    PLEASE NOTE:  YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR RETURNING TO ANY MEETINGS IF YOU ARE IN-BETWEEN JOBS OR ARE NO LONGER WORKING OR IN SCHOOL FULL-TIME!

    Tarrant County Housing Assistance Office (TCHAO) Policy
     

    TCHAO will conduct interim re-examination in each of the following instances:

    • For families receiving the Earned Income Disallowance (EID), TCHAO will conduct an interim re-examination at the start and conclusion of the second 12 month exclusion period (50 percent phase-in period).
    • If the family has reported zero income, TCHAO will conduct an interim re-examination every six months as long as the family continues to report that they have no income.


    Additionally, families with zero income may be required, from time-to-time, to take advantage of certain specified classes, meetings, workshops, etc., designed to assist the family in becoming gainfully employed and/or as follow-up procedures to determine any change in income -- such as attend monthly update meetings. Missing any two consecutive meetings may result in termination of assistance.

    Please note per TCHAO's Administrative Plan, your housing assistance payments can be terminated for violations of TCHAO's Policy regarding families with zero income, so it is vital that you attend these very important mandatory classes.

    PLEASE NOTE: EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2018

    THE JOB CLUB WILL BE MEETING FROM 9 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. ONLY!

    If for any reason you are unable to attend the Zero Income meeting you MUST attend one of the alternate classes offered in its place.  Alternate class calendars are provided the beginning of each month and you must sign-in, in order to receive credit.  If you attend classes other than those offered you MUST provide proof of your attendance within the same month in order to receive credit.
