No provisions. Also see 0004.04 (Emergency Aid Eligibility - SNAP/Expedited Food), 0004.06 (Emergencies - 1st Month Processing).


No provisions.


Before certifying units for expedited service:


Verify the identity of the person completing the application. Use readily available documentary evidence or collateral contacts.


Require whoever completes the application to register for work unless they are exempt or an authorized representative for the unit.


Make reasonable efforts to get other mandatory verifications. Use collateral contacts or readily available documentary evidence. See 0010 (Verification).

If it is not possible to complete these steps within the expedited service time frame, postpone verifications other than the applicant’s identity. See 0004.15 (Emergencies - Postponed Verification Notice).

For units applying ON OR BEFORE the 15th of the month, do not issue benefits for the 2nd month until after the unit provides the postponed verifications. When a unit applies on or before the 15th of the month and postponed verification(s) is not provided within 30 days from the date of application, the case must be closed. The 2nd month's benefit must not be issued if the postponed verification (s) is not provided.

For units applying AFTER the 15th of the month and receiving benefits for the 1st and 2nd months at the same time, do not issue benefits for the 3rd month until after the unit provides the postponed verifications.


See EGA.


Mandatory verifications for GA, EGA, and GRH (adults who are not aged, blind, or disabled) are the same. See 0010.18 (Mandatory Verifications), 0010.18.01 (Mandatory Verifications - Cash Assistance).

Use available documentary evidence, collateral contacts or, if necessary, signed statements from the client.
