See WAG 17-05-01 to find the fiscal month to assign to a SNAP unit.
An approval period begins with:
- the first day of the fiscal month of initial application for any SNAP unit found eligible for the fiscal month of application (even if benefits were not received due to proration); or
- the first day of the first fiscal month of eligibility for those SNAP units not eligible for the fiscal month of initial application; or
- the first day of the first fiscal month in the new approval period for SNAP units who complete the SNAP REDE process and file a new application.
The SNAP approval period ends the last day of the last fiscal month in the approval period.
To reduce an approval period send a locally issued Notice of Change (Form 157), to notify the SNAP Unit of the reduced number of months in the approval period. Process the correction using TA 31/TAR 61.
