Persons who are homeless may qualify for cash, medical, or SNAP benefits, if otherwise eligible. A permanent or fixed address is not required to receive benefits. Do not require proof of residence from homeless persons.

See PM 13-02-03 for the budgeting method to use when determining SNAP eligibility and benefit level for homeless persons.

If a homeless SNAP unit expects to be billed for housing costs, allow the amount verified when determining the excess shelter expenses.
