DTA has a policy requiring SNAP households who use their SNAP out of state for a certain period of time to re-prove their Massachusetts residency, and terminates the SNAP benefits if DTA doesn't get proof or doesn't think the proof provided is sufficient. MLRI recently file a lawsuit arguing that this policy is not legal. Below is the Complaint filed in Suffolk Superio Court, Legal Memo and related documents.

If you work with any families who have been asked about using their SNAP out of state, or were told because they used their benefits out of state that they had to send DTA proofs, please contact Vicky Negus at MLRI vnegus@mlri.org
