Another 3,815 Cut From Arkansas Works

Arkansas Works

Another 3,815 Arkansans are no longer covered by Arkansas Works because they failed to comply with its requirement that they work or perform other activities for three months this year.

The Department of Human Services reported Thursday that those Arkansans joined the 8,462 who had been removed the previous two months. A total of 12,277 Arkansans are no longer covered by the program because of the work requirement.

As of Nov. 7, 6,002 recipients had not complied for two months and faced losing their benefits in December. And 2,600 have not complied one month. Individuals must certify they are working 80 hours per month, engaged in job training or educational activities or doing community service work.
