Alabama PYs 2020-2023 Published Approved


Located in:

a. 9. The method the State agency uses to prevent work registrants from being counted twice within a Federal fiscal year. If the State agency universally work registers all SNAP applicants, this method must specify how the State agency excludes those exempt from work registration under 7 C.F.R. §273.7(b)(1). If the State agency work registers nonexempt participants whenever a new application is submitted, this method must also specify how the State agency excludes those participants who may have already been registered within the past 12 months as specified under 7 C.F.R. §273.7(a)(1)(i);

Current Narrative:

The count of work registrants in Alabama was taken based on a computer system (ERD) that includes work registration coding of all SNAP participants based on their social security number. The ERD Work Registration Report gives a new and cumulative count of all SNAP participants who are tracked based on their social security numbers, which ensures an unduplicated count.

As of October 1st of a Fiscal Year (FY) there is a “begin month” count of work registrants based on work registration coding. As new work registrants are added throughout the month the system is set to capture an “added month” count. These two, the “begin and add month” counts are added to give total end month count. This count is processed each month throughout the fiscal year.
