Resource Materials

The Food and Nutrition Service evaluates application processing timeliness (APT) as part of the quality control (QC) review process. State QC reviewers evaluate APT during the state QC review. Timeliness is calculated by dividing the number of cases timely processed by the number of cases subject to the timeliness measure. A case is considered processed timely if the household has an opportunity to participate within seven days of the application date for expedited service cases and within 30 days of the application date for regular processing cases.
