Payments for rent and utilities up to the amount of AFDC, MFIP-S, or family general assistance benefits to which the assistance unit is entitled shall be provided in the form of vendor payments for as many months as the applicant is eligible or six months, whichever comes first. The residual amount after vendor payment, if any, will be paid to the AFDC, MFIP-S, or family general assistance recipient, unless it is used as a wage subsidy under section 256K.04, subdivision 2. This provision shall apply to all applicants including those meeting the exemption categories under section 256K.03, subdivision 5, or deferral categories under section 256K.03, subdivision 8. To the extent needed, a job search allowance shall be provided for up to eight weeks to cover expenses related to the job search. Before the job search allowance is issued, it must be approved by the employment advisor and financial specialist, and clearly described in the job search plan.
