  • A SNAP only case includes a member who has to meet the SNAP Work Requirement Time-Limited Benefits policy in a county of residence that is no longer waived. Effective 07/01/2021 through 06/30/2022, the SNAP Work Requirement Time-Limited Benefits policy is not in effect for any county in the State.

  • TANF case (with or without) SNAP and the case has earned income; and
  •  any case with SNAP benefits except:
    • SNAP cases where all the adults in the SNAP unit are qualifying members and the case does not have earned income.
    • When a SNAP household has a member subject to SNAP Work Requirement Time-Limited Benefits when the policy is in effect, IES converts the case to Change Reporting.
