Subdivision 1. Eligibility. Emergency Minnesota supplemental aid must be granted if the recipient is without adequate resources to resolve an emergency that, if unresolved, will threaten the health or safety of the recipient.

Property that can be liquidated in time to resolve the emergency and income, excluding an amount equal to the Minnesota supplemental aid standard of assistance, that is normally disregarded or excluded under the Minnesota supplemental aid program must be considered available to meet the emergency need.

Subd. 3. Payment amount. The amount of assistance granted under emergency Minnesota supplemental aid is limited to the amount necessary to resolve the emergency.
