(This policy directive obsoletes PD #05-07-ELI)
As a condition of eligibility for Cash Assistance (CA), resources must be evaluated and verified to determine an individual’s potential to remove or reduce the need for CA. One such resource is potential employability. All applicants/participants are mandated to participate in employment activities unless determined exempt from work rules requirements.
CA applicants/participants who claim they are unable to fulfill work rules requirements due to a mental or physical condition must comply with HRA’s efforts to clinically assess their claim and follow any medical and/or mental health wellness plan that can help them achieve their highest possible level of self-sufficiency.
