Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:||The actual eligibility criteria may differ according to the type of assistance and the agency.|
To be measured only where the person's eligibility for assistance has been assessed.
Instances in which a client who has been assisted on a previous occasion and subsequently seeks further assistance, should generally be considered as another occasion of assistance, and a new 'eligibility status' should be recorded. For example, instances where a significant amount of time has lapsed since previous assistance or where the reasons for seeking assistance have changed should be regarded as additional occasions of assistance.
