2020-63: SNAP: Expiration of Interview Waiver and Updates to College Student Procedures


In response to the surge of SNAP applications received because of COVID- 19, the federal government authorized several waivers to support the timely processing of cases and the continuity of benefits for existing clients. One of these waivers which provided for the temporary suspension of interviews (per Transmittal 2020-55) has expired.

Effective on September 1, 2020 all applications and recertifications must have an interview completed before eligibility can be determined.

Note: Households where adult members are elderly or disabled without earned income continue to be eligible for a waiver of the interview at recertification.

In addition, procedures regarding college students have been updated.
