A $20 work activity allowance is paid each month a client is in Work Experience, or Community Service. The work activity allowance covers personal work-related costs, such as haircuts, nylons, shaving supplies, etc. It must be issued prior to each month the client is on the work assignment.
Do not issue the allowance to employed clients who are not in one of these work activities.
