WAG 05-11-02-a

new manual textEligible Residents in Supportive Living Facilities (SLF)

  • Only residents residing in a Supportive Living Facility (SLF) WAG 04-05-04 covered under the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) waiver that protects the status quo of residents who were already receiving SNAP at the time of the waiver approval qualify for SNAP. The waiver allows these residents to continue to qualify for SNAP and not be considered a resident of an institution through 12/31/2021. The resident must still meet all other eligibility factors. See the list of SLFs covered under the FNS waiver WAG 04-05-04.
  • A resident who is active for SNAP and is residing in a SLF included in the list at redetermination (REDE) continues to qualify for benefits if all other eligibility factors are met.

new manual textIneligible Residents

  • A resident who is living in a SLF that is not covered under the FNS waiver for SNAP participation does not qualify for the program. The resident is considered a resident of an institution and is not eligible for the program. See the list of SLFs covered under the FNS waiver in WAG 04-05-04.
  • A resident who is receiving SNAP and is residing in a SLF covered under the FNS waiver loses eligibility if they later move to a SLF that is not included in the list.
