EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE AND APPLICATIONS

ISSUE DATE: 08/2013
Revision #7

Determine eligibility for emergency aid when page number 1 of the Combined Application Form (DHS-5223) (PDF) (CAF) or the ApplyMN application indicates a need for an expedited interview or an emergency. Also see 0004 (Emergencies).


For applicant households:

If people are not currently receiving cash assistance, they must complete an application.



For participants:

If people are currently receiving cash assistance, they do not have to complete an entire application. However, they must complete page number 1 of the CAF plus any other appropriate pages of the CAF.

If the unit did not complete a Household Report Form (DHS-2120) (PDF) (HRF) or Combined Six-Month Report (DHS-5576) (PDF) (CSR) in the past 30 days, they must complete the appropriate pages of the CAF. For more information, see 0002.11 (Glossary: Child Care...), 0007.03.02 (Six-Month Reporting - SNAP).


When the application lists people in the EGA unit who are not currently receiving cash assistance, the unit must complete an entire application. See 0005.09.03 (When People Must Complete an Application).
