D-501: Activity Interruptions for SNAP E&T Customers

For customers who experience a permanent cessation of work, training, or education activity, child care must continue for a minimum of three months or until the scheduled redetermination, whichever is sooner. If the customer enters an activity at any level within the three months, then child care must continue for the duration of the 12-month eligibility period.

 As described in D-801, Boards must ensure that temporary changes in work, training, or education participation do not affect a customer’s eligibility for child care services.
