SUBJECT: SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP) CLARIFICATION OF RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT
MANUAL REVISION #
Manual section 1105.005.00 has been updated to clarify the residency requirement for SNAP. The residency requirement ensures the participant is a resident of Missouri for any purpose other than vacation. There is no requirement of eligibility to maintain a fixed residence, so address verification is not required unless it is questionable the participant resides in Missouri.
This clarification makes the 1102.015.25 Residency manual section obsolete as address verification is not a requirement.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
