NA Work Requirement Exemptions
(01/01/22 - 12/31/22)
During the interview, review the NA work requirement exemptions for all NA participants aged 16 to 59.
A participant may qualify for more than one NA work requirement exemption. When this occurs, apply the exemption reason that allows the participant the longest exemption period.
All participants screened for NA work requirement exemptions are also screened to determine whether a referral to SNAP CAN is appropriate. When an NA participant states they would like to participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Career Advancement Network (SNAP CAN), determine whether it is appropriate to refer the participant to SNAP CAN. (See SNAP CAN Referral Screening for more information.)
NA work requirements exemptions are as follows:
When a participant does not meet an exemption, the participant is a Work Registrant(g) and must comply with the NA Work Requirements.
When a reported change causes a participant to no longer be eligible for a work requirement exemption, update the PAR/EXEM field on the WORW screen in AZTECS. (See NA Work Registration for more information on how to register a participant for work.)
