PM 08-04-04-e: Foster Care Payments

WAG 08-04-04-e.

Foster care payments for foster adults or children not included in the SNAP unit are the foster person's income and do not affect the SNAP unit's eligibility or benefit amount. This applies even if the payments are made to the SNAP unit that provides the foster care.

If the unit chooses to include the foster adult and/or child in the SNAP case, include the foster care payment with the unit's other nonexempt income when determining eligibility and benefit amount.
