SNAP eligibility expanded during the COVID-19 public health emergency

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 temporarily expands student eligibility to include students enrolled at least half-time in an institution of higher education, who either:

  • a) are eligible to participate in State or federally financed work study during the regular school year, or
  • b) have an expected family contribution (EFC) of $0 in the current academic year determined by completion of the FAFSA.

The Act expands the eligibility exemption to students who are eligible to participate in work study during the regular school year, without the requirement that they actually participate. Students who meet one of the two above outlined criteria may receive SNAP if they meet all other financial and non-financial SNAP eligibility criteria. The Act further provides that the temporary student eligibility standards shall be in effect for initial applications for SNAP until 30 days after the COVID-19 public health emergency is lifted. The temporary student eligibility standards authorized shall be in effect until the first recertification of a household beginning no earlier than 30 days after the COVID-19 public health emergency is lifted.
