1. It is important to note that Minnesota includes cash value of Food Stamps when calculating the maximum amount for lump sum payment which is $3052.
2. It is useful to point out the distinction between the eligibility criteria in ten states that require applicants to have work-related needs and the restrictions on how lump sum payments can be used in five states that require work-related needs. In five states with the work-related eligibility but not the work-related restriction on lump sum payments, while applicants must have work-related needs, the lump sum payments can also be used for other needs.
6. Colorado is again included in this list. Although no specific provisions are shown in Table 2, it is assumed that the counties in this state will require repayment for reapplication during the period of ineligibility.
