OLGT 2020-38: SNAP: ABAWD Time Limit Suspension


Effective April 1, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act temporarily suspended the ABAWD Work Rules. This suspension shall continue until further notice.

Based on this change, clients who are otherwise subject the ABAWD Work Rules must be given a temporary exemption: ABAWD Rules Suspended (COVID-19). Additionally, clients who previously incurred a third strike or Ineligibility Strike are considered to have regained eligibility due to becoming exempt.

For a tutorial on the BEACON steps associated with these procedures, please see Attachment A at the end of this Transmittal.
