(i) In the case of any individual, or couple, whose federal benefit received under Part A of Title XVI of the Social Security Act is reduced in accordance with Section 1612(a)(2)(A) of Public Law 92-603 because he lives in another person's household and receives support and maintenance-in-kind from such person, the appropriate grant level set forth in subdivision (a), (b), (c), or (d) of this section shall be reduced by the amount of the reduction in the federal benefit, subject to the provisions in Section 12204.
This subdivision shall be operative only during such time that such in-kind support and maintenance, under federal law, is treated as providing the basis for a lower payment standard rather than being treated as the receipt of unearned income.
