Within the limits of the human service zone appropriation, each human service zone in this state is obligated, upon receipt of a written application, to provide general assistance to persons who are residents of the human service zone and who are eligible. To be eligible for general assistance, the applicant:
1. May not have made, before or after making an application for general assistance, an assignment or transfer of property for the purpose of rendering the applicant eligible for assistance.
2. Shall comply with the written eligibility standards for general assistance established by the human service zone director or department of human services. A copy of the written standards must be available upon request. Pursuant to this requirement, the ownership of property by an applicant for general assistance, or by the spouse of the applicant, either individually or jointly, or of insurance on the life of the applicant does not preclude the granting of assistance if the applicant is without funds for the applicant's support.
