WAG 03-15-01.

Each SNAP unit member who has to meet the work provisions must:

  • register for work; and
  • NewManualMaterial.gifcooperate with the SNAP Employment or TANF work and training program requirements, and
  • accept a job offer of suitable employment; and
  • not voluntarily quit a job; and
  • not voluntarily reduce work hours to less than 30 hours per week.

NOTE: SNAP work sanction policy does not apply to noncompliance with the SNAP E & T program in an area in which work requirement policy is effective.

Failure to comply with any of these requirements without good cause results in a work sanction. If a work sanction is imposed, the member is ineligible for SNAP benefits for a specific length of time. See PM 03-15-07 for the length of the sanction period.

Family Community Resource Center staff and their representatives determine if good cause exists if a person failed to cooperate with the SNAP E & T program. Family Community Resource Center staff determine if good cause exists if a person fails to meet the other work provisions.
