Food Stamp Program: Non-Discretionary Provisions of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996

Last Published: 08/30/2017

This rule finalizes a proposed rule published July 12, 1999, by amending the Food Stamp Program Regulations to implement certain non-discretionary provisions of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) that affect the Food Stamp Program. The regulatory changes include changes in the minimum and maximum allotments, the standard and shelter deductions, household composition, the fair market value of vehicles, the definition of homeless, and expedited service. In accordance with the proposal, this rule also incorporates, where possible, the principles of the President's Regulatory Reform Initiative and removes overly prescriptive, outdated, and redundant provisions, and increases State agency flexibility.
