Miller, Catherine M., Ed.; Chief, Elizabeth H., Ed.
This program guide covers in outline form the characteristics of state public assistance plans for operating programs of Aid to Families with Dependent Children. The information for each state is presented in a series of pages with four subdivisions: Administration, Eligibility Requirements, Need Determination, and Extension of the Program. In addition, there are tables which list the titles of the state agencies, give the dates on which each of the programs was begun in each state, and explain the formula for federal financial participation in grants to the states for assistance expenditures. A separate section covers characteristics of the plans for Guam, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico for programs intended to aid the aged, the blind and the disabled. Included in an appendix are the following tables: (1) Monthly amounts for food and monthly amounts for all basic needs allowed in the state need standard for AFDC families compared with Department of Agriculture low, moderate, and liberal food cost plans; (2) Methods used by states to determine amount of assistance payment in AFDC; and (3) Amount for all basic needs and amount of payment to a family with no countable income.
