OLGT 2024-27: SNAP: Ending of the State SNAP SupplementSNAP: Termination of COVID-19 Recertifications and Continuation of Recertification Interview Waiver


To assist the Department with transitioning from the end of the Public Health Emergency (PHE), the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) allowed the Department to extend certain administrative waivers for a year. Among those waivers was the COVID-19 recertification process (OLGT 2021-58), in which staff applied the Interim Report (IR) rules to recertify most households.

Effective May 31, 2024, this waiver will end. To meet this deadline, the Department stopped mailing COVID-19 recertification forms. All SNAP households due to recertify for June 2024 or after will be sent the regular recertification form. DTA Connect aligned to allow clients who recertify online to complete the corresponding recertification form as this transition occurs.

To ease the transition back to the regular recertification process, the Department will continue waiving interviews at recertification for households that received the regular recertification and have no missing mandatory verification(s).
