Effective 10/01/19, sanction policy has ended for SNAP recipients who were required to comply with the activity requirements of the SNAP Employment and Training Program (SNAP E&T). Individuals who are currently in sanction status for noncompliance with a SNAP E&T activity requirement must serve out the remainder of their sanction period.
When the sanction ends:
IES system changes are effective 09/27/19 to prevent FCRC staff from accessing the functionality to impose a SNAP E&T sanction.
Sanction policy has not changed for SNAP customers (work registrants) who are required to comply with the Work Provision requirements in PM 03-15-01, formerly known as work registration. Failure to comply with one of the Work Provision requirements without good cause results in a sanction.
A TANF/SNAP customer is still sanctioned for SNAP, if the individual fails to comply with a TANF work and training requirement, unless they are responsible for the care of a child under age 6. See (PM 03-13-04-c and PM 03-15-00).
