ACIN I-24-08: Approval Of Able-Bodied Adult Without Dependents (ABAWD) Waiver For 2008-2009 (4/21/08)

The FNS has approved a one-year waiver from the ABAWD work requirement for 52 counties within California. The waiver will begin May 1, 2008.  When folks discontinued for not meeting an ABAWD work requirement subsequently reapply for non-Assistance food stamps in a waiver county, they can be eligible for benefits. The letter additionally reminds counties that FSET still applies, as do work sanctions.  Just when you were feeling the love.  [Download]
