WAC 388-414-0001, 468-0005

This department is proposing to amend WAC 388-414-0001 to fully incorporate requirements under Title 7 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) §273.2 (j) related to categorical eligibility (CE) for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the requirement to verify residency if questionable at application and recertification for certain households.

The department is also proposing to amend WAC 388-468-0005 to clarify that households that are considered Categorically Eligible based on the receipt of non-cash public assistance benefits (broad-based categorical eligibility) have the same state residency verification requirements as non-CE households. Proposed amendments also clarify that both household types can be out of state for more than one month and still be considered a resident.
