22VAC40-601-50. Application Processing.

Applications for SNAP benefits must be disposed of within 30 days. Applicants have 30 days to provide verification or information needed to determine eligibility of the household. If an application cannot be processed by the 30th day because such information is lacking due to the fault of the household, the application must be denied. If the applicant provides the information during the next 30 days, the eligibility worker must reinstate the application and prorate benefits to the date the last verification was provided.

Statutory Authority

§ 63.2-217 of the Code of Virginia.
