IM-41 03/05/03 TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE SANCTIONED INCOME
|TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE SANCTIONED INCOME|
|When a Temporary Assistance Eligibility
Unit (EU) is sanctioned for non-compliance, the full grant before the sanction
is budgeted for food stamp benefits. The reduced grant is budgeted
for other programs. Therefore, the Temporary Assistance grant for
a sanctioned EU is split into to two entries in FAMIS.
The actual benefit being received is entered as Temporary Assistance income with the income type of C1 (or up to C6). The sanctioned amount is entered with an income type of RP (Recoupment).
EXAMPLE: An EU is being sanctioned for non-compliance with Temporary Assistance Program requirements. The EU receives Temporary Assistance in the amount of $219. If the EU was not sanctioned for noncompliance, the EU would receive $292. For the food stamp budget, the $292 is budgeted, however the child care budget includes the $219. To ensure the Temporary Assistance grant is budgeted correctly for both programs, an amount of $219 is shown as code C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, or C6 (Temporary Assistance). The $73 is shown as code RP (Recoupment - refusal to comply with program requirements). FAMIS excludes the RP income for the Child Care Program and includes it for the Food Stamp Program.
