Subsidized Employment

Workforce Investment Act (WIA) income is sometimes used to pay employers to hire Temporary Assistance participants. This is called subsidized employment. If an individual is employed through subsidized employment, it is necessary to determine what funds are used to pay the employer:

  • if Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant funds are used to pay the employer, enter type code EI (earned income) and source code SU (subsidized employment - block grant funded); or
  • if funds other than TANF block grant funds are used to pay the employer, enter type code EI (earned income) and source code J2 (WIA Wages - Work Experience, Subsidized Employment).

Income eligibility determination

FAMIS determines if the WIA/Subsidized employment income is included or excluded according to the following chart.
