SNAP Applications and the Affordable Care Act

As States implement application and process changes for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), States look to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) for technical assistance on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) application issues and policy compatibility. This memorandum provides Regional Offices with guidance as they work with States to ensure that online and paper SNAP applications meet Federal requirements and are user-friendly, understandable and effective.
