Food Stamp Table of Contents


At the time of application, the household shall be asked to provide information regarding any resources which any household member (or ineligible alien or disqualified person whose resources are being considered available to the household) had transferred within the three month period immediately preceding the date of application.  This includes resources which are transferred between members of the same household (including ineligible aliens or disqualified persons whose resources are being considered available to the household). 


Households which have transferred resources knowingly for the purpose of qualifying or attempting to qualify for Food Stamp benefits are disqualified from participation in the program for up to one year from the date of discovery of the transfer.  This disqualification period shall be applied if the resources are transferred knowingly in the three month period prior to application or if they are transferred knowingly after the household is determined eligible for benefits.
