UTILITY ALLOWANCE FOR RENTERS
MANUAL REVISION #51 SECTION 1115.035.25.25
|STANDARD UTILITY ALLOWANCE FOR RENTERS
MANUAL REVISION #51
|Effective immediately, renter households
whose landlord bills them a flat rate for heating and/or cooling expenses
separate from their rent are entitled to the standard utility allowance
(SUA). It is no longer correct to allow renter households charged
a flat rate for heating and cooling expenses by their landlord the non-heating
and cooling standard.
This change results from recently published Food Stamp Program Regulations. Section 1115.035.25.25 of the Food Stamp Manual is revised to reflect this change in policy.
