.07 Employing and Moving People Off Welfare and Encouraging Responsibility (EMPOWER) Definition
 
EMPOWER was a pilot project designed to encourage participants to transition off CA. It was in effect for the benefit months of November 1995 through September 2002.
 
During this pilot project FAA implemented Family Benefit Cap Period (FBCP) policy which is still in effect. Benefit Capped (BC) Children are not eligible for CA unless FBCP exempt. However, the CA budgetary unit that includes a BC child is eligible to receive an EMPOWER Deduction.
