Best Practices and Resources for Informing Households of ABAWD Rules

This memorandum provides best practices and resources to help State agencies effectively inform Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households of the requirements for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABA WD) and to enrich training for eligibility workers. Since ABAWD policy is complex, States should provide clients with accurate and understandable information in accessible locations ( e.g., waiting rooms, websites, or partner organizations).
