Activity and Referral Codes

Activity codes are used in the ACT. field of the Work and Training Activities area to describe the different types of activities the client is active in.

The Activity Code has 4 digits. The last 3 digits are an activity or information code and the first digit is based on which program staff manage the client's participation in the activity.

The program staff codes are:

4 Family Community Resource Center
5 SNAP E&T Contractor
  • Referral Code

Enter the 4-digit referral code when a client is referred to an SNAP E&T provider for assignment to an SNAP E&T activity. The first digit is the program staff code 4.

  • Activity Codes

Enter the activity code when a client is approved for the SNAP E&T activity. When the client changes activities, replace the old activity code with the new code. If the client ends an activity and does not enter a new activity, enter the Close-out Code (999) with the same first digit as the previous activity code. Multiple codes cannot be entered.

NOTE: The 4-digit activity code is also required with Item 80 needs codes on Mercury supportive service payment authorizations. text deletedSee WAG 27-80-04-b.
