- A dependent child resides in the home;
- There is an eligible emergency; and
- Available income and assets do not meet the total needs.
The following are examples of activities that are considered EA case management and are to be reported under the code for EA Case Management/Other Services:
- Coordination with other local, state and/or federal programs and resources;
- Contact with vendors, landlords, banks or local government
The purpose of these activities is to ensure that the eviction or foreclosure action does not proceed, that housing is secured, and/or that the emergency is resolved within the program policies and procedures:
See the W-2 Manual for policy information on Emergency Assistance (EA), including EA financial eligibility and EA non-financial eligibility.
