This extension does not apply to SNAP households who had a certification period expiring in March 2020 and were granted a 6-month extension which will now expire in September 2020. See Policy Memo, Select SNAP Certification Periods Extended for 6-Months Due to COVID-19, dated 04/18/2020. These households will receive a REDE application and must be interviewed and have their eligibility determined under regular SNAP policy.
Note: The entire State is exempt from the SNAP Work Requirement. See Manual Release #20.17, Entire State Exempt from SNAP Time-Limit, dated 09/02/2020. Changes are still required to be reported according to the household's reporting status.
