Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a suggested means of determining the "cost of living adjustment" for applicants, as required for the plan to select the "least able to pay" within the entire applicant pool (in regards to the JRJ program)?

The Governor-designated state agency has discretion on determining the "cost of living adjustment" for applicants. We encourage states to work with their Department of Labor to determine the appropriate formula and make adjustments, if necessary, for any increases in the cost of living.
