SUBJECT: SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP) WORK REQUIREMENT FOR 18 THROUGH 49 YEAR-OLDS MANUAL SECTION UPDATED
MANUAL REVISION #
The SNAP manual section 1105.035.00 Work Requirement for 18 Through 49 Year-Olds is updated with current information about the Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents (ABAWDs) non-work months “fixed clock”.
Effective July 1, 2023 ABAWD criteria will resume for SNAP cases and the 36 month clock will start again. To receive SNAP benefits for more than three months in a 36 month period, all ABAWDS ages 18 through 49 must comply with a training/work requirement or meet an exemption. The three-year “fixed clock” resets every 36 months.
Food Stamp language was changed to SNAP and EU was updated to household.
