The "3-month Grace Period"


Employable GR participants are granted one "3-month Grace Period" during a 12 month period. The three months do not need to be consecutive. The time spent receiving GR benefits, as an employable or unemployable will be counted in calculating the "3-month Grace Period." During the "3-month Grace Period" a GR case must not be terminated or sanctioned for failure to comply with employment-related program requirements.

a. Days 1-30: Applicants during days 1 to 30 of the "3-month Grace Period" may be denied for failing to comply with employable GR/GROW requirements, but they may not be sanctioned.

Employable participants whose cases were approved during this period must be encouraged to comply with employment- related program requirements. If a participant fails to comply with an employment-related program requirement, the system will send him/her a PA 4047-G, General Relief Informational Notice (Attachment A). However, the participant's case will not be terminated or sanctioned for failure to comply.
b. Days 31-60: Employable participants during days 31-60 must be encouraged to comply with employment-related requirements. If a participant fails to comply with an employment-related program requirement, the system will send him/her a PA 4047-G, General Relief Informational Notice (Attachment A). However, participant's case will not be neither terminated nor sanctioned for failure to comply.
c. Days 61-90: Employable participants during days 61-90 must comply with employment-related requirements. If a participant fails to comply with an employment-related program requirement, The system will send him/her a Notice of Action. However, the participant's case will not be terminated or sanctioned for failure to comply until the 91st day after the first act of noncompliance within a 12-month period. See Attachment B, Noncompliance Scenarios.

      • A participant applied for GR for the first time on February 1, 2013. On March 14, 2013, the participant commits their first act of noncompliance.
      • The "3-month Grace Period" begins on February 1, 2013.

      • An informational Notice of Action will be triggered by the system and mailed to the participant.
