Operations Bulletin 2016-05: Cross Program Eligibility of Strikers for TAFDC, EAEDC or SNAP Benefits


When a case containing a striker applies for TAFDC, the case manager must:

  • deny the application if the striker is the parent or the only child in the case. Use Reason Category: Program Rules and Reason: Striker; and
  • open the TAFDC case without the striker if the striker is anyone other than a parent or the only child in the case.

When a household containing a striker applies for SNAP benefits, the case manager must determine if the household:

  • was eligible to participate the day before the strike; and
  •  is otherwise currently eligible.

For EAEDC, there is no policy prohibiting strikers who are otherwise eligible from receiving EAEDC benefits.
