Some units must report every 6 Months. See 0007.03.02 (Six-Month Reporting - SNAP).

Some units must report when a change occurs. See 0007.15 (Unscheduled Reporting of Changes - Cash), 0007.15.03 (Unscheduled Reporting of Changes - SNAP).

Explain the purpose of reporting to clients. Provide units on monthly reporting with Household Report Forms (HRFs) (DHS-2120) (PDF). See 0002.31 (Glossary: Honoraria...) for the definition of HRF. Provide units on Six-Month Reporting with the Combined Six-Month Report (CSR) (DHS-5576) (PDF). See 0002.61 (Glossary: Self...) for the definition of a CSR. Provide units not subject to monthly or Six-Month Reporting with Change Report Forms (DHS-2402) (PDF).
