When determining a migrant unit's eligibility, identify any out-of-state resources or income from property in their home-base area. The client may have real property in their home area that they rent out while they are in the migrant job stream. If the client has rental property, add any rental income to their other income. If the rental property is their home, its value remains exempt as homestead property.
If the migrant has an out-of-state home that is not rented out during their absence, they are allowed shelter costs for that home.
