OLGT 2017-80: TAFDC - Allowing the Rent Allowance Benefit for Certain Household Expenses

The Rent Allowance policy found at 106 CMR 705.910 states that TAFDC
clients are eligible for a Rent/Mortgage allowance (hereafter referred to as
rent allowance) of $40 per month in their TAFDC grant, provided they do not
live in public, state or federally subsidized housing, and have rent, mortgage,
or room and/or board expenses.

Currently, clients who live in private housing where the mortgage has been
paid off do not get the rent allowance benefit.

With BEACON changes scheduled for production on October 2, 2017, those
clients will be paid the $40 rent allowance benefit provided certain other
homeowner expenses exist.
