Financial responsibility must be assigned to a single county beginning the 1st day of the calendar month after the unit members are required to be in a single unit. Assign financial responsibility to the county that was initially responsible for the unit member with the earliest date of application.

The county in which the unit is currently residing becomes financially responsible for the entire unit beginning 2 full calendar months after the month in which financial responsibility was consolidated into 1 county.


SNAP, MSA, GRH:

No provisions.


GA:

Follow the guidelines below to determine what to do when 2 people who lived in different counties move and form a single unit in another county, and at least 1 person has an open assistance case:

If only 1 county is financially responsible for members of the new unit, that county assumes financial responsibility for everyone in the unit.

If more than 1 county is financially responsible for members of the new unit, the county with the existing case must assume financial responsibility for everyone in the new unit.

If more than 1 financially responsible county has an existing case, the county with the earliest current application date must assume financial responsibility for everyone in the new unit.
