Final Rule: SNAP Requirements for Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents

USDA is finalizing its rulemaking proposed February 1, 2019. The rule revises the conditions under which USDA would waive, when requested by States, the able-bodied adult without dependents (ABAWD) time limit in areas that have an unemployment rate of over 10 percent or a lack of sufficient jobs. In addition, the rule limits carryover of ABAWD discretionary exemptions.
