90 INF-2: Public Assistance Security Deposits
The purpose of this release is to notify local districts of an amendment to
Department regulation 352.6 which provides for a public assistance security
agreement or cash security deposit under certain circumstances. This
amendment is effective on December 20, 1989 and clarifies the Department
policy that in no case will temporary residence in a shelter, including
those defined in Parts 900 or 1000 of Department regulations, a hotel/motel
or any other such emergency or transitional residential facility be
considered sufficient housing accommodations for purposes of denial of a
security agreement or cash security deposit. Thus, continuing to house
recipients in temporary accommodations rather than paying a security deposit
to secure permanent housing is contrary to Department regulations.
