Disqualification of GLAs
(01/01/21 – 12/31/21)
A GLA may lose its certification from ADHS or DDD. When this occurs, residents of the GLA are ineligible to receive NA.
When notified of the loss of certification, the Policy Support Team (PST) completes the following:
Close the cases using the RI Denial or Closure Reason Code
Send the PI of each GLA budgetary unit a written notice (F200) of the change in eligibility status.
Do not allow for NOAA. The loss of the facility's certification is not controlled by or appealable under the NA program.
When a GLA is disqualified by FNS, residents may only apply on their own behalf. In this situation, consider the following:
The participants must meet the definition of an NA budgetary unit
Benefits may not be turned over to the GLA to purchase either food or meals
When the GLA loses certification, PST must ensure the GLA is listed as ineligible on the PST Institution List (for internal use only).
