Training Overview:  Annual and Adjusted Income, the most critical aspect for determining eligibility and payments, can also be used to meet other tribal objectives such as self-sufficiency and targeting certain populations. Just a few examples include implementing a minimum income for homeownership programs; choosing the right income definition to benefit your applicants; requiring employment income to achieve self-sufficiency; implementing a deduction for employment income to avoid give incentives to wage-earners; or implementing a deduction for cultural purposes.

Join us for an informative look at not only the basics of Annual and Adjusted income calculations, but also to learn more about options you have in using this tool to meet your tribal objectives, and what policy revisions are necessary to achieve them.
