IM-121 07/02/01 BUDGETING
INCOME OF INELIGIBLE IMMIGRANTS FOR FOOD STAMPS
FOOD STAMP MANUAL REVISION # 23
|BUDGETING INCOME OF INELIGIBLE IMMIGRANTS FOR FOOD STAMPS|
|Food stamp policy for determining resources
and income budgeting procedures for households containing ineligible immigrants
is changed with regulatory changes effective June 1, 2001. Consider
all resources and all but a pro rata share of the income and expenses of
ineligible immigrants for the remaining household members. This is
the same resource and income budgeting procedure used for immigrants with
temporary status and undocumented immigrants.
Food stamp policy regarding sponsored immigrants is changed. Do not deem the resources and gross income of a sponsor or a sponsor's spouse for an ineligible immigrant.
Implement policy for income and resources of ineligible immigrants at initial certification and at the next recertification for active food stamp households.
The Food Stamp Manual is revised to reflect the new policy.
