WAG 17-03-01.

Continue to process the application when the applicant is eligible, but initial benefits cannot be provided, and a written decision cannot be mailed within the time limits for disposition (see PM 17-01-01). When the applicant caused the delay, extend the processing time limits by the number of days of delay they caused.

When the Family Community Resource Center causes a delay of disposition, DHS may have to make a special payment to the applicant. The Springfield central office reviews all delayed disposition cases and makes any special payments to eligible applicants.
