PM 08-04-01-e: Room or Board

WAG 08-04-01-e.

Income from roomers or boarders includes all direct payments to the SNAP unit for room and meals, plus any contributions to the unit's shelter expenses.

The cost of doing business is an allowable deduction as long as it does not exceed the boarder's payment and is equal to either:

  • the maximum monthly SNAP benefit level for the total number of boarders; or
  • the actual verified cost of providing room and meals, if the actual cost exceeds the benefit level.

Foster care payments for a boarder are exempt.
