Department of Public Welfare--Redetermining Eligibility, General Eligibility Provisions and Income;
Regulation No. 14-474

   On January 16, 2002, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Department of Public Welfare (Department). This rulemaking amends 55 Pa. Code Chapters 133, 141, 165, 183 and 187, and adds Chapter 281. The proposed regulation was published in the January 26, 2002, Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day public comment period. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on August 12, 2002.

   This regulation establishes the ''Extended Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program (ETANF).'' ETANF provides additional assistance for families who have exhausted their 60-month TANF allowance. Requirements for eligibility have also been established for families to receive General Assistance when their 60-month TANF benefits expire and the family is not eligible for ETANF.

   We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Department (62 P. S. §§ 201(2) and 403(b)) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

   This regulation is approved.
