General Relief Program [22 VAC 40 ‑ 411]
Action:
Amend the General Relief Program
 
General Information
Action Summary General Relief is a program that provides assistance to certain children who are not eligible for other forms of assistance and is an optional program at the local level. More specifically, the program provides assistance to children not related to the adult with whom they reside, do not qualify for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and are not in foster care. The General Relief regulation provides minimal information regarding how income and resources are determined and the process of determining eligibility. The goal of the proposed action is to amend the General Relief regulation (22 VAC 40-411) by adding details regarding the eligibility determination process, the amount of assistance provided, and timeframes for which assistance can be provided. Other changes may be necessary, based on public comments received.
