Title: ●Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program: Requirements and Services for Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents 

The Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended (the Act), establishes a time limit for SNAP participation of three months in three years for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) who are not working. The Act provides State flexibility by allowing State agencies to waive the time limit if an area that an individual resides in has an unemployment rate of over 10 percent or does not have a sufficient number of jobs to provide employment for individuals.  The ANPRM would request public input on a proposed framework for modifying ABAWD time limit waivers with the goal of moving individuals to work as the best solution for poverty, and to advance this goal consistent with the structure and the intent of the Act.
