This was a live-streamed session at the 2022 SNAP E&T National Forum. Emerging from the federal Public Health Emergency (PHE) will require state agencies to eventually resume enforcing the time limit for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs). The goal of this session is to help states prepare to administer ABAWD policy in a manner which ensures individuals who are eligible continue to receive benefits, while also minimizing payment errors. In this session, FNS delves into ABAWD policy requirements and best practices for state agencies, such as screening for exemptions, notifying households of changes, requesting waivers of the time limit, and applying discretionary exemptions.
