(1)

A client who becomes ineligible for the Pre-TANF or TANF programs because of an increase in earned income is eligible for transition benefits and services for 12 months upon meeting the criteria in OAR 461-190-0211 (Case Plan Activities and Standards for Support Service Payments; JOBS, Pre-TANF, REF, REP, SFPSS, TANF) for receiving support services (see 461-001-0025 (Definitions of Terms, Components, and Activities; JOBS, Pre-TANF, TANF)) in the JOBS program. The total cost of JOBS support service payments may not exceed $1,000 for the duration of the 12-month period. For clients whose eligibility ends for reasons other than income from new employment, the benefits and services are limited to completing any JOBS activity (see 461-001-0025 (Definitions of Terms, Components, and Activities; JOBS, Pre-TANF, TANF)) in progress at the time program eligibility ends.
