SUBJECT: PROCESSING RECERTIFICATION UPDATES TO THE SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP) MANUAL
MANUAL REVISION #
The SNAP manual has been updated to clarify when a household must submit a new application for rejected recertification applications due to the household not taking a required action, such as completing an interview or not returning requested information.
For rejected recertifications, a new application is not required to be submitted if the household completes the required action within 30 days after the end of the certification period. Staff should use the date the household complied to register and process an application without requiring a new application form to be submitted. If a household completes the required action more than 30 days past the end of the certification period, the household must provide a new application.
If a household complies after the end of the certification period, use the date the certification period ended to determine if the household is within the 30 days not the date the recertification was registered or rejected. A household’s certification period can be found by reviewing the Action Authorization from EULOG for the last rejection action.
Examples were added to the manual section (1130.015.15 Processing Recertifications) for further clarification.
NOTE: This update only applies to recertification applications.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
