Assigning Nutrition Assistance Approval Periods
 
(01/01/20 - 12/31/20)
FAA Offices must ensure approval periods are assigned based on the budgetary unit’s circumstances. (See Example When an Approval Period Needs to be Changed.)
 
AZTECS automatically assigns Nutrition Assistance (NA) approval periods based on the budgetary unit’s circumstances using the following criteria:
 
A 24-month approval period is assigned to budgetary units when all participants are elderly or have a disability with no source of earned or self-employment income.
 
NOTE Budgetary units assigned 24-month approval periods are subject to Standard Reporting requirements.
 
All other Simplified Reporting budgetary units are assigned a 12-month approval period.
