Food Stamp Table of Contents



This section describes the treatment of income and budgeting procedures determining eligibility and level of benefits.


All sources of income must be explored and the gross countable income from all sources must be verified prior to approval or continuation of benefits, except when a food stamp household qualifies for expedited service. The applicant/recipient has primary responsibility for providing acceptable income verification. If he/she is unable to secure/provide acceptable verification, the caseworker will give assistance in securing the required information.
