Figure income considered available from the sponsor, not the actual amount received by the noncitizen, unless the amount received exceeds the amount considered available(see WAG 09-01-00).

Example: Mr. A sponsored a noncitizen 2 years ago and $50 per month of Mr. A's income is considered available to the noncitizen. Mr. A only gives the noncitizen $35 per month. Use $50 to figure the noncitizen's food stamp benefits.
