Report the one digit code indicating whether the family receives cash assistance from a state-funded initiative that counts toward TANF MOE. States will need to consult with their TANF program to determine which programs are used for TANF MOE in their state, since these programs differ from state to state. Even if this source of income is disregarded for eligibility determination purposes, the correct answer is “yes” for a family that received income from this source in the reporting month.

For Protective Services cases only, if income is not used to determine eligibility for protective service, this does not have to be reported.

Note that a zero is used for a specific reason; for “unknown/not reported” use a blank or space.
