Nov 13, 2023 4:29 PMHow should we address the income verification requirement for direct financial assistance for clients in our work statement if our program does not verify income client income for services, as our clients are children?All clients have to confirm income eligibility (and can through self-attestation of income) to receive cash financial assistance or specific requested items (ie. child care supplies). If the assistance is being provided to each client, without exception, like if your is providing a backpack with child care products to each client or each client has dues provided for them to join a program Ė this is considered a program cost (GenOps) and wonít need to be in DCA. Direct assistance to clients that is provided on a situational basis (especially gift cards or payments on a clientís behalf) requires income eligibility. Assistance or items provided to all clients without exception is a General Operating expense that can be negotiated in the work statement.
