DTA Blurb 53: Changes to the TAFDC Grant Calculation


The way that TAFDC grants are calculated is changing in some important ways.

What are the changes happening to the calculation? 

1) The TAFDC 185% gross income eligibility test is being eliminated.

2) The TAFDC Work Related expense deduction will be increased from $150 to $200.

3) The 30 and 1/3 and 30 and ½ earned income disregards are being replaced with a flat 50% disregard regardless of the client’s exemption status.

All cases affected by these changes will automatically be recalculated over the weekend of October 21, 2016 and sent a calculation notice with their new grant amount.

This change is only for TAFDC.
