SFAs have an obligation to verify all questionable applications. Any verification that is done for cause is done in addition to the sample required for either random or focused sampling. Also, verification efforts must not delay the approval of applications. If an application is complete and indicates a family is eligible for benefits, the application must be approved. Following approval, the verification process may begin. If a household fails to submit the requested information by the date specified, the family must be sent a notice of adverse action.
