(2) TrustLine application has been denied; or

(3) TrustLine application has not been approved within the 30-day period pursuant to section 18078(o).

(A) Active or contagious tuberculosis; or

The provider will be reimbursed for services provided through the effective day of the TrustLine revocation or the day of receipt of documentation of active or contagious tuberculosis, or a conviction of any crime involving violence against, or abuse or neglect of, children.

(2) Refer the parent to the local Resource and Referral Program for assistance with finding a new provider; and

(3) Document the action and retain the documentation and make it available to the CDE upon request. When this action affects the provider of a current CalWORKs cash aided parent, the program shall inform the local county welfare department if services cannot be transferred to another provider without a gap in services.
