TANF Vehicle Rules
This memorandum, with attachments, was sent to FNS regional offices
to explain that State food stamp agencies may use TANF vehicle rules in
place of food stamp vehicle rules to determine the value of household
January 4, 2001
Subject: Food Stamp Provisions of the Agriculture, Rural Development,
Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act,
To: Regional Administrators / Food and Nutrition Service
We are also attaching a chart listing each State’s vehicle policy under
its TANF cash assistance program. This information has been compiled from
several sources and may not reflect the State’s current policy. As stated
in the memorandum, States may, however, use the vehicle rules from other
TANF programs under certain conditions.
If States opt to use TANF rules for valuing vehicles, please let us know
which program the State is using and the rules of that program.
If you have any questions, please contact John Knaus or Connie Slough
at (703) 305-2098 or (703) 305-2762, respectively.
