PM 03-15-09-b: Ending a Sanction When the Period Ends

WAG 03-15-09-b.

After the end of the sanction period, the person may qualify for SNAP benefits if:

  • the person was sanctioned for the full length of the sanction period; and
  • an application is filed if the case was canceled or denied as a result of the sanction, or a request is made to add the person to an active case if the case remained eligible when the individual was sanctioned; and
  • all other eligibility factors are met.

NOTE: When a TANF case is sanctioned due to noncompliance with a work and training requirement, the noncooperating person who caused the sanction is disqualifed from receiving SNAP for the entire 3-months (see WAG 03-15-09-b).
