SUBJECT: Questions and Answer on Homeless Participation

All Regions

Attached for use in conjunction with the Final Rule on Participation of Homeless Persons in WIC, published in the Federal Register on Aug. 5, 1992, is a set of Questions and Answers on this issue. These Q&A's were developed with the assistance of the regional offices as the Interim Homeless Rule was implemented and the Final Rule was being crafted. Although all of the issues raised in the Q&A's are important ones, they represent areas of policy interpretation that were not appropriate for inclusion in the regulation itself.
