What is an Intentional Program Violation?

As a result of an investigation, it was determined that you intentionally made a false or misleading statement, intentionally misrepresented or withheld facts, or intentionally committed any act in order to receive a level of service from the Wisconsin Shares program that you would not have otherwise been eligible.

The individual shall be denied child care subsidy as follows:

  • 6 months for a first intentional program violation
  • 12 months for a second intentional program violation
  • Permanently for a third intentional program violation

What do I do if I don’t agree with the Intentional Program Violation?

A notice will be sent to you in the mail, explaining the reason why an Intentional Program Violation has been imposed and agency contact information. You should contact the individual listed to receive detailed information regarding your Intentional Program Violation.

If you feel the agency was not correct in its decision, you can request a Fair Hearing by writing to:

Division of Hearing and Appeals
P.O. Box 7875
Madison, WI 53707-7875

You should also contact the individual who imposed your Intentional Program Violation to discuss options for resolution.

What if I need child care while I am in the Appeal process?

If you are currently receiving Wisconsin Shares child care subsidy, you can request a continuation of subsidy during the appeal process. Your appeal must include this request.
