Edna Clark, an eligible recipient, lives with three other adults in a home she owns
(it is not a public assistance household). Each month, Ms. Clark receives $100 in
cash from the ABC Fuel Co. to help pay the household's water and electric bills. Development
per SI 00830.605 Home Energy Assistance and Support and Maintenance Assistance (HEA/SMA) results in
a determination that the $100 is excludable HEA.
Average household expenses are $900. Ms. Clark contributes $200. The other members
of the household contribute a total of $800.
In determining household expenses for the purpose of computing inside ISM, we subtract
the $100 in excluded cash HEA from the average household expenses of $900, leaving
a balance of $800. Since Ms. Clark contributes $200, her pro rata share of the $800,
she receives no inside ISM.
