A SNAP REDE involves:
- completing an application;
- conducting an interview, except for the mail-in EZ REDE or for EZ REDEs that qualify for an automated Phone Interview.
Note: For SNAP units containing a unit member who is employed, schedule a phone interview instead of a face-to-face interview at the Family Community Resource Center unless the SNAP unit requests a face-to-face interview. If the SNAP unit requests a face-to-face interview conduct one.
- review of eligibility; and
- SNAP unit cooperation.
NOTE: See PM 19-07-04 for the REDE process on EZ REDE units and Mid-Point Reporting units (see PM 19-07-01).
If a SNAP unit files a timely SNAP REDE application, provide benefits for the new approval period by the unit's usual mailing date.
Do not extend the approval period without a new application or request.
