ACIN I-100-08: New EBT Types For Ancillary/Work-Related Cash Benefits (12/31/08)

EBT gets bigger: counties can choose (but are not required) to add Cal-Learn and Welfare-to-Work benefits to the EBT system. Theory is better data, reporting and tracking, and faster client receipt of benefits, than those old fashioned checks. Available payment are transportation, ancillary, and bonuses for Cal-Learn; transportation costs and ancillary expenses necessary for WTW participation. (The letter does not address this issue, but one hopes that counties will counsel recipients about these payments appearing on the EBT, for budgeting purposes.) [Download]
