Shelter costs for a home temporarily unoccupied by the unit due to employment, training, illness, natural disaster or casualty loss, are only allowed if they would result in a deduction. When a SNAP unit has both an occupied home and an unoccupied home, only one standard is allowed. The appropriate utility standard may be allowed for the home the SNAP unit chooses.
