If the household is homeless and responsible for any shelter expense, they may be eligible for the Homeless Standard Deduction. When the household is marked homeless, the system will compare the Excess Shelter Cost (see 1115.035.25 Excess Shelter Cost) to the Homeless Standard Deduction to determine which option would be better for the participant.

The Homeless Standard Deduction is $179.66 per month.
