SB263 by Menéndez (Relating to the ability of certain relative caretakers of dependent children to receive supplemental financial assistance and be assigned as protective payees for financial assistance payments.), As Introduced
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would expand eligibility for one-time cash assistance payments to include aunts, uncles, or siblings over the age of 25 who are caretakers of a dependent child and who meet certain financial qualifications and would permit such individuals to be named protective payee to receive and manage assistance payments. It is assumed the number of new recipients would be small and any cost to implement the provisions of the bill could be absorbed within available resources.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
