PURPOSE OF BULLETIN

To inform staff of changes to the Homeowner and Renters Assistance Program for the 2007 claim year.

REGISTERED DOMESTIC PARTNERS

Recently enacted law requires Registered Domestic Partners (RDP) to be treated as married couples when applying California benefits including HRA. Consequently, RDPs follow the same requirements as married couples when qualifying for HRA benefits. References in the HRA instructions to a spouse, a husband, or a wife also refer to an RDP under California law.

For additional information on Registered Domestic Partners, go to the Secretary of State Website.
