Gift Income vs. Child Support
Gift income is money that is received from someone who is not counted in the family size when determining eligibility. The only acceptable documentation for gift income is a letter from the gift giver. To be considered acceptable documentation, the letter must be dated within the last 45 days and include the name(s) of the person(s) receiving the gift, the frequency of gift (one time gifts are NOT considered as gift income), and the signature of the gift giver.
Child support is money paid by one parent to the other parent who has custody of the child or children after separation. (Note: Child support is considered income of the child, not the adult, who receives the income on behalf of the child.) The applicant must supply appropriate documentation for child support. Appropriate documentation includes a court order, a check stub, a statement from the district attorney's office, or a letter from the person paying the child support.
For more information on income types, please refer to Chapter 4 of the CAA Reference Manual (pdf 133 KB).
