Notice of Emergency Rule Making: TANF Payment Levels

The Department of Human Services has published both emergency and proposed rules which establish new TANF payment levels, and are effective October 1, 2014.  The new levels increase both payment levels by one and half percent (1.5%), in accordance with the published increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI).  The rules also decrease the payment level for customers who have received TANF for greater than 60 months by forty-one and seven tenths percent (41.7%) of previously reduced payment level.   For a copy of the Rules, please contact Brian Campbell at (202) 698-3902.
