02 CA Income Maximum Test
 
(01/01/20 - 12/31/20)
The CA Income Maximum Test only applies to Tribal TANF program determinations completed in AZTECS. To be eligible for Tribal TANF, the Tribal TANF budgetary unit must be prospectively eligible.
 
The following CA income maximum tests are applied to the specific Tribal TANF program determinations completed in AZTECS:
 
A Hopi Tribal TANF budgetary unit is prospectively eligible for CA based on the CA income maximum limit when the total countable income is equal to or less than 185% of the FPL.
A Pascua Yaqui Tribal TANF budgetary unit is prospectively eligible for CA based on the CA income maximum limit when the total countable income is equal to or less than 200% of the FPL.
A Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRP-MIC) Life Enhancement and Resource Network (LEARN) budgetary unit is prospectively eligible for CA based on the CA income maximum limit when the total countable income is equal to or less than 185% of the FPL.
 
Process the eligibility determination through AFIM and AFNN to calculate the Tribal TANF payment standard on AFPD.
 
The Tribal TANF budgetary unit is not eligible when the total countable income is more than the CA income maximum.
 
Complete the following when AFIM displays the edit message, FAILED - INELIGIBLE:
 
Key the Denial or Closure Reason code in the DENIAL/CLOSURE REASON field on AFPD. (See Denial or Closure References for Denial and Closure Reason Codes and links to the policy)
Key the CA ineligible date in the INELIG DATE field on AFPD.
 
NOTE The ineligible date is used to determine the eligibility begin date for Transitional Child Care (TCC). The date is also used to establish a CA overpayment.
