NOTE: The governor of Arizona has requested changes to SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). These have not gone into effect at this time, but a rundown of requested changes is listed below:
Allow DES to approve applications without eligibility interviews, resulting in quicker and more efficient services;
Allow all eligible families to purchase prepared and hot meals from grocery stores;
Waive the work requirements for eligible students while employment opportunities are more scarce;
Provide to eligible families the maximum allotment allowed for up to two months; and
Extend certification periods by 90 days, saving clients time and ensuring benefits are provided to clients during the pandemic.
