How long can I get Basic Food?

(1) The length of time the department determines your assistance unit (AU) is eligible to get Basic Food is called a certification period. The department may certify your AU for up to twelve months, unless:
(a) You receive food assistance under WASHCAP, we set your certification period as described under WAC 388-492-0090.
(b) You receive transitional food assistance, we set your certification period as described under WAC 388-489-0015.
(2) We terminate your Basic Food benefits before the end of your certification period in subsection (1) if:
(a) You fail to complete a mid-certification review as described under WAC 388-418-0011;
(b) We get proof of a change that makes your AU ineligible; or
(c) We get information that your AU is ineligible and you do not provide needed information to verify your AU's circumstances.
