Applicants must meet the financial and nonfinancial requirements of the SNAP Program to receive SNAP benefits. Determine SNAP eligibility for a cash applicant, unless they do not want SNAP benefits.
Determine if a person who applied for SNAP benefits after the 15th day of the fiscal month is eligible for the fiscal month of application and the month following. If the person is eligible for both months, enter the approval for both months at the same
time in the computer.
