Change to Zero Issuance Food

Some Basic Food Assistance Units (AUs) that meet Categorical Eligibility (CE) rules have a zero allotment benefit. If the household reports a change of circumstance that may increase their benefit amount, they can:

  • Reapply for benefits and receive a prorated benefit amount based on the application date, or
  • Follow the standard change of circumstance rules.
NOTE: If client chooses to reapply, this is treated as a new application. See, How do I process a reapplication for a zero allotment Basic Food Assistance Unit (AU)?
