(a) A participant may receive special allowances for supportive services, as specified in this chapter, to enable the individual to participate in an approved work or work-related activity for the number of hours as specified on the AMR or EDP. Supportive services will be provided if required by the individual to participate in an approved work or work-related activity.
(b) A special allowance for supportive services is made only to the extent that the item or service is not available from another public or non-profit source at no cost to the individual, and cannot be met by educational assistance. The activity may not be secondary education or an equivalent level of vocational or technical training, unless the individual is pregnant or a custodial parent.
(c) The Department will inform the individual, orally and in writing, of the availability of special allowances for supportive services at application, redetermination, recertification and whenever the AMR or EDP is developed or revised.
(d) The Department will assist the participant to obtain supportive services required to participate in approved work or work-related activities as specified on an AMR or EDP, with one exception. Supportive services are not available for a SNAP only participant to maintain current employment, except as provided in § 165.1(d) (relating to general).
(e) Except as otherwise restricted in this chapter, special allowances for supportive services may be granted up to the maximum amount and frequency established by the Department in Appendix A (relating to work and work-related special allowances).
(f) The Department will not pay for education or training-related expenses for a SNAP only participant when these expenses are being met prior to participation in a SNAP employment and training program.
