Fair Hearing Decision Digest on Retroactive Assistance Where Appellants Borrowed Funds to Meet Needs

The following Fair Hearing Decisions reversed determinations where a social services agency denied or failed to act on applications or requests for Public Assistance or Emergency Assistance, and where the appellants borrowed funds to meet their pressing needs. The decisions directed the social services agency to provide retroactive assistance to enable the appellants to repay their loans.

Decisions issued since November 2010 are available through the Fair Hearing Decision Archive of the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).

You can also search for selected decisions in the Online Resource Center's (ORC's) Fair Hearing Bank, which requires registration. After you are registered, log in to the ORC's Fair Hearing Bank.
