• Effective immediately, ODJFS is reinstating the use of Provisional Enrollments. A few things to
remember about these enrollments:
o Provisional enrollments can only be used for Employment or Program to Reduce Barriers
eligibility categories
o Provisional agreement (found on the Portal) is signed and dated by the young adult and
Liaison and, if approved, by ODJFS
o Within 30 days of VPA date, young adults must submit documentation showing they met
eligibility criteria
This documentation showing the young adult has met eligibility must be submitted to
ODJFS ( by the date indicated on the provisional agreement
o ODJFS is tracking Provisional Enrollments
o If young adult did not meet eligibility criteria, Liaison must issue a Notice of
Ineligibility (NOI) with an effective date dated back to enrollment date
o If young adult has been enrolled provisionally and their eligibility criteria changes
before the provisional period has ended, you must contact/notify ODJFS
o Provisional Enrollment can only be used one time per young adult
o Ensure that the young adult has not been employed or participating in a program
for more than 30 days. If so, they do not qualify for provisional enrollment

• Please remember that we should not be contacting a young adult still in PCSA/IV-E Court/DYS
custody without obtaining permission first. Once you have reached out to their worker and received
permission to contact the young person, simply enter it into an activity log.

• Applications are looking much better and are coming in quickly, but still having some declined for
rework. Please take the time to review all documentation for completeness; signatures, dates,
ensuring it is legible, eligibility documentation is "official", etc. Many are being routed to ODJFS
without being reviewed by Supervisors first. An extra set of eyes could save a lot of time for everyone
