#07-40-ELI: Budgeting Of Vista Payments
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations require that Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) earnings for persons receiving FS benefits prior to joining the program must be excluded as earned income for FS budgeting purposes. This income exemption does not apply to persons who apply for FS benefits after joining VISTA.
Individuals applying for or receiving Cash Assistance (CA) benefits will continue to receive the VISTA income exemption. The CA income exemption must be applied whether or not they are receiving FS benefits at the time.
