|(a) In the TANF Program, income is the receipt of cash or its equivalent, either earned or unearned, a person may directly or indirectly use to meet basic needs (such as food, clothing, and shelter). Earned income is compensation received from employment or job training and includes military and flight pay, allowances for housing and food, and receipts from self-employment (but not receipts from ownership of property involving less than 20 hours of work per week, which are unearned income). All other income is unearned income, including dividends and withdrawals from excluded resources. Lump-sum payments occurring no more than once annually are considered a resource. Lump-sum payments occurring more than once annually are considered income. (b) In SNAP, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission follows the definition of income in 7 CFR §273.9(b).
