A TANF unit or a SNAP unit with a striker can receive cash or SNAP if the unit was receiving, or eligible to receive, on the day before the strike began.
At intake for TANF cases, if the striker is a parent living in the home, the entire case is ineligible. If the striker is a child, or an adult in the case who is not a parent, then only that person is ineligible. If the only child in a case is on
strike, the entire case is ineligible.
