No provisions.


SNAP:

EXCEPT for income listed below, use the gross income of all unit members and the income deemed to them for both prospective and retrospective GITs. See 0016 (Income From People Not in the Unit), 0017 (Determining Gross Income). Destitute units have special provisions for determining what income to use. See 0004.51 (Destitute Units, Eligibility and Benefits). To determine which GIT to use, see 0013.06 (SNAP Categorical Eligibility/Ineligibility), 0019.06 (Gross Income Limits).

For Uncle Harry Food Support (UHFS) units ONLY:

Do not apply the GIT both prospectively and retrospectively in months the unit gets an extra payment, such as 3 biweekly checks in 1 month. If budgeting is being done prospectively, eligibility is affected prospectively; if budgeting is being done retrospectively, eligibility is affected in the payment month corresponding to the budget month.

Do not apply the GIT retrospectively to non-recurring income the unit received in the 1st 2 months of eligibility if you budgeted it prospectively.
