Work Requirement

***Beginning April 1, 2020,  individuals who are not meeting or otherwise exempt from the FoodShare work requirement for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) will be receiving a temporary exemption from the requirement. Exempt members are still able (and encouraged) to participate in FSET during this time—they will just no longer be required to comply with the ABAWD work requirement to maintain their FoodShare benefits.

This statewide exemption has been extended through the remainder of FFY 2021 or until such time as the injunction is lifted.

Federal Fiscal year is 10/1/2020 – 9/30/2021 for FSET program
