Governor: A change is made to the limit on Additional Requirements for Emergent Need (AREN) from an annual limit of $750 to a lifetime limit of $750. The AREN payment is in addition to the regular monthly cash grant clients already receive.

Senate: A change is made to the limit on Additional Requirements for Emergent Need (AREN) from an annual-limit of $750 to a lifetime-limit of $750. Funding was provided in the 2014 Supplemental Budget to adjust the AREN payment from a lifetime-limit to an annual-limit. This item returns the policy to a lifetime-limit. The AREN payment is provided in certain circumstances to TANF clients.
