|Reopening of Comment Period: SNAP Requirements for Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents
This proposed rule seeks to amend the regulatory standards by which USDA evaluates state Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program agency requests to waive the time limit and to end the unlimited carryover of able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWD) percentage exemptions. FNS seeks to reopen the comment period on April 8, 2019, for a period of 3 days ending April 10, 2019.

The proposed rule would encourage broader application of the statutory ABAWD work requirement, consistent with the Administration's focus on fostering self-sufficiency.
