General Assistance and Public Assistance Diversion Payments

More and more States are making one-time or special assistance payments to households under State programs, that may or may not be funded under Title IV-A of the Social Security Act, to keep the households from becoming monthly recipients of regular Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).  We have advised several regional offices via Email and a memo to the Northeast Regional Office on March 17, 1998, that such payments cannot be considered a nonrecurring lump-sum payment but must be counted as income. They are not over and above a normal assistance grant but are the normal grant for certain households at risk of becoming regular TANF recipients.
