B Eligibility Requirements - WMAT
 
(10/01/12 - 12/31/12)
White Mountain Apache Tribe (WMAT) TANF eligibility is limited to otherwise eligible CA budgetary units that meet all of the following:
 
The budgetary unit lives on the WMAT-TANF Service Delivery Area (SDA). This includes budgetary units that moved from another state or Tribal area onto the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.
 
EXCEPTION
Participants who relocate for purposes of education, training, or on-the-job training approved by the WMAT TANF Program remain eligible to receive benefits when they are actively participating in the program. They do not have to be residing on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.
 
At least one child is an enrolled (or potentially enrolled, unborn) WMAT Tribal member. (see Tribal CA-PG)
 
WARNING
When the ONLY enrolled WMAT child in the budgetary unit receives SSI, process the case as a State CA case.
 
WMAT-TANF participants may NOT receive duplicate assistance from the state or other Tribal CA Programs.
 
Determine CA eligibility following state CA policy when the budgetary unit does NOT meet one of the WMAT requirements:
 
Participants do NOT have a choice between State CA or WMAT TANF. When the budgetary unit meet WMAT requirements they must be referred to the WMAT TANF program.
