2008 Food, Conservation and Energy Act Requirements (LAC 67:III.403, 1235, 1947, 1949, 1957, and 1983)
The Department of Social Services, Office of Family Support, has exercised the emergency provision of the Administrative Procedure Act, R.S. 49:953(B) to amend Louisiana Administrative Code 67, Subpart 1 General Administrative Procedures, Subpart 2 Family Independence Temporary Assistance Program, and Subpart 3 Food Stamp Program effective October 1, 2008.
In order to comply with the Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-246), the agency will amend Subpart 1, §403 in the Electronic Benefits Issuance System to change the period of time that must elapse before unused Food Stamp and cash benefits can be placed in dormant status or be expunged. The agency is amending §1235 in the Family Independence Temporary Assistance Program to exempt the value of all retirement accounts and educational savings accounts from countable resources to provide consistency in these assistance programs. Additionally, the agency will amend §1947, §1949, §1957, and §1983 in the Food Stamp Program to exempt the value of all retirement accounts and educational savings accounts from countable resources, change the minimum allotment for a household
of one or two persons, and remove the limitation on the dependent care deduction in accordance with the provisions of the Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-246).
Emergency action in this matter is necessary in order to meet the requirements of the federal law which mandates these changes to be made effective October 1, 2008, and will remain in effect for 120 days or until a final rule has been promulgated.

Chapter 4.Electronics Benefits Issuance System
B.Benefits are delivered in this manner for households certified on an on-going basis. Benefits can accumulate but are accounted for according to the month of availability and will be withdrawn on a first-in-first-out basis. Each month’s benefits with no activity by the client for a period of 180 days from the date of availability will be moved to dormant status. These benefits can be returned to active status at the local Office of Family Support offices upon request of the head of household or upon reapplication for assistance if the case is in inactive status. Benefits that remain in dormant status for a period of 185 days will be expunged and will not be available to the household after expungement. FITAP benefits which have been expunged may be reauthorized for availability if the recipient has good cause for not having accessed them during the original availability period.
