SUBJECT: EXPIRATION OF COVID-19 VERIFICATION FLEXIBILITIES FOR SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP), TEMPORARY ASSISTANCE (TA) AND CHILD CARE (CC)
During COVID-19 staff were allowed to provide flexibilities while working with participants to obtain verifications introduced in memo, IM-22 COVID-19 Verification for Food Stamps (FS), Temporary Assistance (TA) and Child Care (CC), dated 3/27/2020.
Beginning August 1, 2021, participants will be required to meet verification eligibility requirements as flexibilities will no longer be adequate when determining eligibility.
Discontinue using Collateral Contact (CC) to prevent cases from pending for verification that was not easily obtained. Instead, process requests for verifications and pending verifications according to pre-COVID-19 requirements.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
