800 words

When examining eligibility rules, a social worker looks for an  alignment between the rules and the conceptualization of the social  problem the policy or program is meant to address. Additionally, when  analyzing policies and programs, they look for potential problems that  eligibility criteria might introduce, such as “stigma, alienation,  off-targeting of benefits, overwhelming costs, over-utilization and  under-utilization, political interference, and negative incentives and  disincentives” (Chambers & Bonk, 2013, p. 106). These issues  represent potential problems that undermine policy and program  functionality (Chambers & Bonk, 2013, p.106). Notice that the  presence of any one of the problems mentioned by Chambers and Bonk can  work against the adequacy, equity, and efficiency of a policy or  program.
