(a) The amount of the child assistance benefit will be established by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, subject to the approval of the Director of the Budget. The maximum benefit a CAP household must receive is dependent upon the number of children participating in CAP and the district in which the family is residing. Districts are separated into three different categories: Category A, Category B and Category C. The maximum benefits and districts which comprise each category are:

(b) The Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance may develop a benefit methodology which will provide for the periodic adjustment of the benefit level to reflect changes in maximum monthly grants and allowances in the FA program. Under the methodology the office has developed, the earned and unearned income of a CAP household is applied against the maximum CAP benefit as described in subdivision (a) of this section to determine eligibility and benefit amount.
(c) Unearned income of a CAP household is fully applied against the maximum benefit when determining eligibility and benefit amount.
(d) Earned income of a CAP household is applied against the maximum benefit after first disregarding a percentage of the earnings. When more than one CAP filing unit member has earned income, the amount of earned income must be combined before disregarding a percentage of the earnings. The percentage of earnings disregarded is 90 percent up to the 1989 monthly poverty level of the CAP household and 33 percent above the 1989 monthly poverty level of the CAP household.
