Rule Details

Rule Number: 13P034
Title: All Programs: Verification Process Change
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Department for Children and Families, Agency of Human Services
Legal Authority: 33 V.S.A. § 105(c)(2)
Summary: This rule proposes to change the Economic Services Division (ESD) rules to update the name of the program from "Food Stamp" to the State program name "3SquaresVT" or to the federal program title "SNAP". The rule also updates the verification process for 3SquaresVT applicants. The proposed rule will eliminate the mandated second written contact under the current rule and will provide a more timely eligibility determination for 3SquaresVT applicants. The proposed rule change is consistent with federal regulations at 7 CFR §273.2(c)(5) that require the State agency to provide each household with a notice of the verification requirements the household must meet as part of the certification and recertification application process. The notice also informs the household of the State agency's responsibility to assist the household in obtaining required verification, provided the household is cooperating with the agency.
Persons Affected: ESD 3SquaresVT applicants, DCF/ESD employees who process program applications.
Economic Impact: This rule will have a minimal impact economically. Administrative burden will be decreased under this rule.
