(This Policy Directive Replaces PD #04-07-ELI)
This policy has been revised to:
• Include changes in policy regarding the restriction of shelter allowances on FA cases, based on Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) clearance that the shelter allowance on all FA cases be placed on vendor restriction even in instances where the total grant is less than the shelter allowances.
• Add information regarding the restriction of Food and Other grants for the purpose of paying excess rent.
• Inform staff that the Voluntary Rent/Utility Restriction Notice (Timely) (W-145K) has been revised and renamed the Notice of Voluntary Restriction of Partial/Full Food and Other Grant for Payment of Rent/Utility to accommodate changes in policy.
