DTA Operations Memos & Online Guide Transmittals
The Department of Transitional Assistance frequently issues policy changes that do not go through the public rule-making process. These can be important in benefits advocacy. DTA's Field Operations Memos are full of policy clarifications on lawsuits and implementation of new regulations.
In the fall of 2014, DTA created an online guide with policy information for the EAEDC, SNAP and TAFDC programs. It also includes BEACON data-entry and procedural steps for case managers to process cases. This is a link to the DTA online guide.
DTA has stopped issuing operations memos. Instead, policy changes and clarifications are issued via online guide transmittals.
We've collected nearly every Field Operations Memo and Online Guide transmittal from 1995 to the present. These operations memoranda and online guide transmittals are organized by year. Select the year that you are interested in from the list of choices in the left column scroll box.
