SUBJECT: UPDATE TO NON-EXEMPT RESOURCES IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
1110.025.00 Non-Exempt Resources policy in the SNAP manual has been updated to include crowdfunding accounts. These accounts meet the definition of a liquid resource once the funds are accessible to the household. Staff should count the actual value of funds accessible to the household.
- Crowdfunding accounts created specifically for expenses such as medical or shelter costs are not exempt from this policy. However, staff should apply qualified expenses when funds are used for that purpose.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
