Waivers of Rules

Waiver database 
  Welcome to the new SNAP Certification Policy Waiver Database!  This waiver database was designed to help users find the information they need quickly in a friendly format.  SNAP regulations provide that waivers may be approved under certain conditions, including when approval of a waiver would result in a more effective and efficient administration of the program. 
  To make the waiver database more user friendly, in addition to the comprehensive database listing all SNAP waivers, including denied, expired, rescinded and obsolete waivers, we have added a second database listing only those waivers that are currently in effect.
