A good faith effort exists when factors beyond the person's control prevent them from making the required number of contacts.
Some examples of good faith efforts include the following:
- The client appears for the scheduled interview and the employer misses the meeting.
- The client has less than the needed number of contacts or interviews and applications, but came close to the required number in trying to find work.
- The client fails a civil service or other job screening test.
- The client completes an application that is not accepted by the employer (confirmed by the employer).
- The client has less than the required number of employer contacts based on the lack of available jobs in the geographical area.
- The client's job search efforts shows that they should be in another SNAP E & T component.
