1

Determine the participant’s weekly work
participation requirement (32 or 35 hours) for the Activity Participation
Month.

2

Estimate the number of hours of employment or
other approved WTW activity that the participant is expected to complete
per week, if any, for the Activity Participation Month.

3

Determine the number of unmet hours of
participation for the Activity Participation Month by subtracting the
estimated weekly number of employment or other approved WTW activity hours
from the total weekly number of participation hours required (32 or 35 from
Step 1).

4

Determine the actual Cash Grant authorized for
the Grant Calculation Month (The amount including underpayments and
supplemental payments issued on or before the 10^{th} day of the
month and after recoupment of penalties and overpayment adjustments).

5

Determine the actual Food Stamp allotment
authorized for the Grant/Calculation Month (The amount after overissuance
adjustments and including any underissuances paid on or before the 10^{th}
of the month).
Note: To determine the prorated amount of Food
Stamps for mixed household, take the total household Food Stamp allotment
and divide it by the number of recipients in the household equal to the
dollar amount received by each person.
Multiply this amount by the number of CalWORKs Cash Aid recipients
in the household.

6

Determine the total benefits paid for the
Grant/Calculation Month by adding the Actual Cash Grant (Step 4) and the
Actual Food Stamp allotment (Step 5).
Cash Grant + Food Stamp Allotment = Total
Benefits

7

Divide the Total Benefits (Step 6) for the
Grant/Calculation Month by the State Minimum Wage.
Total Benefits / State Minimum Wage = Monthly
Hours
Note: The current State Minimum Wage is
$8.00. The minimum wage is subject
to periodic adjustments.

8

Convert the monthly hours (Step 7) to Weekly
Allowable WEX/CSR Participation Hours by dividing the Monthly Hours by 4.33
(the average number of weeks in a month).
Monthly Hours / 4.33 = Weekly Allowable WEX/CSR
Participation Hours

9

Complete these steps each month as participant
continues in WEX/CSR activity.
