To streamline the SNAP recertification process, this Operations Memo introduces the Annual Reporting (AR) process for households currently receiving earned or unearned income or is homeless. Federal law allows for a ertification of one year for households with earned or unearned income as long as there is an interim contact. The Annual Reporting process is essentially two consecutive semiannual reporting periods with an interim report required at the end of the first six month period. Changes reported on the Interim Report (IR) are to be acted upon in the remaining six months of certification, and no interview is required unless the information provided is questionable or contradictory to prior information reported by the household. The process will be introduced in two phases -- see attached memorandum for more information.
