The SNAP Work Rules is 6 pages. Page 1, provides an explanation of the notice, explains the two types of SNAP work rules, provides a section to enter the name of each person who must comply with a work rule and includes a summary on the voluntary SNAP E&T Program. Pages 2 through 6 contain program information as follows:
Sometimes things happen that prevent a person from following the work rules like getting sick or lack of transportation to get to work. A nonexempt person may claim Good Cause for either work rule. If the nonexempt person has cause for not complying, no action is taken to stop benefits. The SNAP household must contact the FCRC to report that there is a Good Cause reason for not following the work rules.
The SNAP Employment and Training Program is a voluntary program that provides opportunities for SNAP recipients, (except those receiving TANF Cash), to acquire work skills and find employment. The program also helps with work-related expenses for the first 90 days of a job. Volunteers in the program cannot be sanctioned.
A SNAP household who applies for or receives benefits has the right to appeal and receive a fair hearing (PM 01-07-00, WAG 01-07-00).
