Wisconsin Works (W-2) Manual
In addition to meeting the nonfinancial eligibility criteria, applicants must also meet financial eligibility criteria to be considered eligible for W-2 services or a JAL. W-2 financial eligibility is determined by both a gross income and an asset test.
There are two exceptions to this:
· A Minor Parent is eligible for case management services without regard to income or assets.
· Participants in a CMF placement do not have to meet the financial eligibility requirements. CMF participants must meet nonfinancial eligibility requirements in order to be eligible for ongoing case management services.
