SI PHI00520.009 (PA) Pennsylvania Community Correction Centers (TN 3 -- 9/2004)

A. Background

The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) operates 14 Community Corrections Centers (CCCs) across the state. These sites provide a structured, supervised living arrangement to inmates and parolees. However, the CCCs do not provide food as part of its program.

B. Policy

Although these facilities are state run, they do not meet the definition of an institution for SSI purposes (SI 00520.001.B.2.) because food is not provided. For this reason, the individuals who are residing in these facilities may establish eligibility for SSI payments if all other SSI program criteria are met (i.e., N22/N02 is not appropriate).

Many of the residents in the program pay a nominal “rent.” In recent times, it is not uncommon for prisons to charge inmates a nominal fee to "reimburse" for the costs incurred by the taxpayers. For SSI purposes, under no circumstances would this type of charge, even if it is called a “rent” payment, be characterized as a rental agreement nor as representing a landlord/tenant relationship between the individual and the Bureau of Community Corrections (BCC).

Contact with the BCC has confirmed that the value of the shelter provided exceeds the presumed maximum value (PMV). Therefore, the shelter is correctly valued using the PMV. This value will be verified with the BCC at each cost-of-living increase.

C. Precedent

Field offices servicing these locations should make sure that their precedents are updated accordingly. The information should be recorded on the SEANET 8045 Facility Determination Site.
