GIS 12 TA/DC006: 2012 Emergency Program Income Guidelines for Emergency Safety Net Assistance (ESNA) and Emergency Assistance to Needy Families with Children (EAF)

The income standard for ESNA is 125% of the official Federal Poverty Guidelines. The Unites States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) updates the poverty guidelines annually, but the 125% income standard is in effect from April 1 through March 31 of the following year.

This income standard does not apply: If the emergency is the result of a fire, flood or other like catastrophe; or If emergency energy assistance is granted in accordance with Department regulations 18 NYCRR ยง 352.5 (c ), (d) and (e) to prevent disconnection of or to restore utility (natural gas and electricity) service, or to arrange for an emergency delivery of non-utility (other than natural gas or electricity) heating fuel. Districts do not have the authority to authorize TA benefits for emergency non-utility (other than natural gas or electricity) fuel deliveries when the non-utility fuel is used solely for domestic purposes, such as cooking or heating hot water.
