When someone requests SNAP, review their application to see if they qualify for expedited service. Expedited service has special timeframes and requirements for getting SNAP benefits quickly to people who qualify for them.
The application form must be completed before any benefits are issued. See PM 02-04-04 for the definition of what is considered an application.
