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.
