The Mahoning County Child Support Enforcement Agency has started a new program to help parents who have lost their license after falling behind on child support payments.
“Deals on Wheels” will be implemented for the month of August only. The program allows people who are behind to make one month’s payment plus $1 to SCEA. The agency will give the parent a reinstatement form to present to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Parents who are unemployed must also agree to seek employment.
“That way, the money gets back to mom or dad or whoever has the children, whoever, caretaker. That way they get the money as appropriate so that they have money to support the child,” said Attorney John Caroline, MCCSEA.
The Deals for Wheels program runs through Aug. 31.
