ESP Transportation Changes: TransAction Associates

Due to the current fiscal crisis, the Department has revised its eligibility requirement for ESP Transportation payments for clients. The referral process to TransAction Associates for transportation payments ends effective December 31, 2009.

ESP Transportation Changes: Employed Clients

Currently, a client or a former client who is working at least 20 hours per week is eligible for transportation payments. Effective January 1, 2010, a client or former client whose only activity is employment is no longer eligible to receive transportation payments. Clients should receive any payments owed for reimbursable transportation costs from December. No case manager action is required for these cases. If the TAO has a Full Engagement Worker (FEW) and the client contacts the case manager, the case manager must refer the client to the FEW to address the loss of the transportation benefit. IMPORTANT: Clients who are employed and are participating in an ESP activity remain eligible for transportation payments.
