SUBJECT: SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP) SHELTER EXPENSE CHANGES NOT REPORTED WITH ADDRESS CHANGE MANUAL UPDATE
When a SNAP household reports a new address, if the new shelter expense information was not reported with the address change the agency must investigate changes in the shelter costs. Manual Section 1115.035.25.20 Utility Decision Period has been updated to reflect this requirement.
Manual section 1140.005.50 Address Changes was previously updated in regards to this as announced in memo IM-64 dated May 24, 2022. Refer to that memo for the steps that are to be taken when new shelter expense information was not provided with the new address.
NOTE: A change of address is not required to be reported by the household.
Manual section 1105.005.00 Residency has been updated to remove the reference to the FAMIS User Guide, updated terminology, and removed FAMIS specific references.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
- Send questions through normal supervisory channels.
