Do not consider the income of non-household members available to the household. Consider cash payments (contributions) from the non-household member to the household as income.

If the household shares deductible expenses with the non-household member, only the amount actually paid or contributed by the household is deducted as a household expense. If the payments or contributions cannot be differentiated, deduct only the household's pro rata share.

EXCEPTION:  The full applicable utility standard is allowed to the Food Stamp household when a household member and a non-household member share the expense.
