SECTION 14.   The second paragraph of paragraph (B) of said section 30 of said chapter 23B, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by striking out the first sentence and inserting in place thereof the following 2 sentences: Emergency housing assistance shall be denied to a family who, at any time within 1 year immediately prior to the filing of an application for emergency assistance, has depleted, assigned or transferred real or personal property that would have rendered such family ineligible for assistance if the depletion, transfer or assignment was not reasonable at the time or was not for good cause reasons. For purposes of the preceding sentence, good cause reasons shall include, but not be limited to, that the funds were expended for necessary or reasonable costs of living such as rent, utilities, food, health related needs, education related expenses or transportation.
