#04-43-ELI: Limitation Of Immediate Need Grants (Code 44 And/Or Health And Safety Kit)
(This Policy Bulletin Replaces PB #03-171-ELI) This policy bulletin has been revised to: • Clearly indicate when Action Code 90LN is entered in NYCWAY and when it should not be entered. • Clarify that this new policy limits the receipt of immediate needs grants (code 44 and/or health and safety kit) to one application within a three-month period for certain individuals. It does not limit the number of immediate need grants an applicant who is otherwise eligible may receive during an application period. • Inform staff that the Notice of Decision on Assistance to Meet an Immediate Need (W-145HH) has been revised to clarify the limitation policy and to reflect a change in telephone numbers for requesting a Fair Hearing.
