Income in kind is exempt when determining eligibility and benefit amount. Income in kind is a benefit paid in behalf of a person, but not paid directly to them (e.g., foster care payments made by a county to foster parents or a facility in behalf of a
foster child). Income in kind is also a benefit received in a form other than money (e.g., food, clothes, etc.).
