A TANF applicant’s failure to attend a meeting due to her mistake in recording the date and time of the appointment constituted a material violation of program rules. However, as the applicant’s failure to keep the appointment was the first material violation she had committed, the Division of Family and Children Services erred in closing her TANF case prior to conducting a conciliation meeting.
