Staff must make all efforts to process SNAP applications quickly and accurately using the best information available for purposes of verifying program eligibility.

In response to the increased volume of SNAP applications stemming from the COVID-19 state of emergency, effective immediately, the United States Department of Agriculture- Food and Nutrition Services (USDA-FNS) has waived the requirement to conduct SNAP application interviews when all mandatory verifications are satisfied. This waiver impacts the way applications will be handled as it related to processing for both expedited and ongoing benefit issuances.
