b.received assistance under the "Work First New Jersey General Public Assistance Act," P.L.1947, c.156 (C.44:8-107 et seq.);

The written notification shall use the statement developed by the State Treasurer pursuant to section 4 of P.L.2005, c.210 (C.52:18-11.3) for this purpose. The notification shall be distributed in a manner deemed by the commissioner to be the most practicable and cost effective, but that will ensure personal notification of each person. The commissioner shall take such reasonable actions as may be necessary to avoid the distribution of more than one notice to a person who was the recipient of or participated in two or more of the programs listed in this section. The notification shall be distributed between January 1 and February 15 of each calendar year following the calendar year in which the person was a recipient or participant, or foster parent. If the recipient, participant or foster parent was a married couple, only one notice addressed to either the husband or wife, or both, shall be required.
