SUBJECT: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) ­ Clarification of Eligibility of Fleeing Felons Final Rule ­ Questions and Answers (Q&A) - March 2016
TO: All Regional Directors
SNAP

Since the Sept. 10, 2015 (80 FR 54410) publication of the final rule, Clarification of Eligibility of Fleeing Felons, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) received several questions regarding its implementation. FNS released a Q&A in response to those questions on March 8, 2016. Since that time, FNS has received additional questions and is issuing this second Q&A to address them. 

We hope the attached Q&A helps state agencies clarify the requirements of the final rule.
