Action:
Establish General Relief Program
 
General Information
Action Summary General Relief is a program that provides assistance to individuals who are not eligible for other forms of assistance. It is an optional program at the local level. Currently, there are multiple regulations governing the General Relief Program. These regulations define the different types of assistance available, how income and resources are determined, and the process for determining eligibility. These separate regulations will be repealed and new comprehensive regulation established. Concurrent with establishment of this regulation, Entitlement Date in the General Relief Program (22VAC40-410), General Relief Program – Locality Options (22VAC40-570, and General Relief Program – Deeming Income from Alien Sponsors (22VAC40-640) will be repealed.
