Each work registrant will be reviewed according to the criteria in the Food Stamp Manual. Mandatory work registrants and volunteers may be assigned or exempted from work components based on these criteria.  

 

Voluntary participants are no longer subject to the 120 hours a month participation limit or the requirement that the number of hours not exceed the household’s food stamp benefit divided by minimum wage.   This limit has primarily affected households working 30 or more hours per week and households with very small benefit amounts.

 

Sanctions for non-compliance with the Food Stamp E&T components apply only to mandatory participants, as described in 1240-1-3-.45.  Persons who volunteer for these components will not be disqualified for non-compliance.

 

The E&T Program has seven components that will be offered to participants in the funded counties.  All counties will not have the same components because the number of participants will vary due to county size.

 

Each work registrant will be reviewed according to the criteria outlined in this chapter.  Mandatory work registrants and volunteers may be assigned or exempted from work components based on these criteria.
