[REPEALED] Earned Income Disregards/Student Earnings in the Aid to Families With Dependent Children (AFDC) Program [22 VAC 40 ‑ 290]
Action:
Repeal 28 AFDC Regulations, that are being replaced by a new Comprehensive TANF Regulation
 
General Information
Action Summary On August 22, 1996, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) was enacted, introducing welfare reform at the federal level. In Title I of the Act, Congress replaced the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program with the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant. This block grant considerably reduced federal regulation of cash assistance and employment services programs, allowing states to design their programs within limited parameters. Because the framework of the AFDC program was repealed by Congress, Virginia adopted pre-TANF federal definitions of eligibility criteria in order to maintain the program as it currently operated in Virginia. To that end, the 1997 Virginia General Assembly adopted legislation that codified the old rules, and an advisory committee comprised of legislators, socials services directors and workers, local government officials, and citizens, was formed to consider new TANF options. The committee made recommendations to simplify and streamline the TANF and VIEW programs. The proposed regulations, 22 VAC 40-295-10 et seq., will implement the recommendations of the TANF Advisory Committee and will also serve as a comprehensive program regulation. This regulation will be repealed and any necessary language included in the proposed comprehensive regulation.
