Income Verification Policy
Our Federal grants require us by contract to verify every applicant’s income at the time of intake. This includes the income for everyone living in the household who is age eighteen (18) or older. If you are missing specific eligibility documentation with your application, you will be asked to submit the documentation within 72 business hours. If you do not provide all of the essential documentation within the allotted timeframe, your application will be left pending.

Missing Paystubs The form(s) below can be used by those who do not have pay stubs for the past four weeks to provide as proof of employment income; or have not been with a new job long enough to receive a paycheck.
Zero Income Everyone on the application who reports they are age 18 or older will be asked if they have income to report. If the answer is no, the household member will complete a Self-Declaration of Zero Income as part of the application. This is only valid for 30 days.

Yellowstone Country Assitance Network uses customer satisfaction data and input to design our programs and services that meet their needs. Please take a minute and let us know how we are doing.
If you are reading this, it means that we might have failed to live up to your expectations or denied your requests. We aspire to have everyone who seeks our services in Park and Hot Springs County love what we do. But there are times when personalities clash, our staff missed meeting our standards, or there are times when our customers contribute to our failure.
Regardless of why, ultimately, we desire to assist Park and Hot Springs County residents in becoming self-sufficient. It may be helpful if we describe the requirements our staff have to serve you.
To assist you, we are required to obtain information about you. Many of our funding sources need personal data to qualify you for their programs. Some are federal funding. We ask all of our intake questions because of those contractual requirements. We do need to know the name, age, and demographics for everyone living in your house regardless of if they are related or not. We need to verify proof income for everyone 18 and older, even if it is zero. We need to verify the number of household members in the house. You may choose to do this with other documentation inlead using the last four digits of the Social Security Number and enter 0000 on the application. We do need to verify that your residence is in the county. We have contracted funds to provide services. We do need to ensure that the services we provide are allowable under our contracts with our funders. These are not meant to be a barrier but give us better information to walk beside you in this new journey toward self-sufficiency.
Let’s get to why you are here.
