Title: ●Stop Counting Food When Calculating In-Kind Support and Maintenance 

We propose to amend the general definition of income in 416.1102 to remove the specific reference to food. Additionally, we will change the definition of In-Kind Support and Maintenance (ISM) to no longer consider food expenses as a source of ISM. Instead, ISM would only be derived from shelter expenses (i.e. costs associated with room, rent, mortgage payments, real property taxes, heating fuel, gas, electricity, water, sewerage, and garbage collection services). The present definition of ISM is used across several regulations and this regulatory change would necessitate minor changes to other related regulations.
