SUBJECT: NATIONAL ACCURACY CLEARINGHOUSE (NAC) COLLISION REPORTS
The goal of the NAC is to prevent duplicate participation. When duplicate participation is discovered, notification is received on a daily Collision Report.
Collision: A participant has active Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits in two states at the same time.
Refer to IM Memorandum #99, dated 10/01/2021, National Accuracy Clearinghouse (NAC) Pilot for additional information regarding the NAC.
Collision Reports identify two types of collisions based on when SNAP benefits were approved in each state.
- Type 1: Missouri is the first state to authorize benefits and it appears that the participant has moved to the other state and applied there. Missouri will be responsible for contacting the participant and ending the benefits in Missouri.
- Type 2: Missouri is the second state to authorize benefits and it appears that the participant moved to Missouri from the other state. Missouri will receive notification from the other state when benefits in their state have ended. Missouri will be responsible for recouping duplicate SNAP benefits.
