ACIN I-29-08: 2008 15% Exemption Allocations For ABAWDs (4/23/08)

Counties may temporarily exempt ABAWDs (limited to three months in a 36-month time period unless they work at least 20 hours a week or participate in a qualifying work or training program) who are at risk of losing food stamp eligibility due to the three-month limit by granting the 15% exemption. The 36 counties with an ABAWD waiver covering the entire county are listed; these counties are not allocated 15% exemptions, since ABAWDs in these counties are not subject to the work requirement. Inlcudes a reminder that 15% ABAWD exemption cannot be granted during a food stamp sanction. [Download]
