SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Food and Nutrition Service published a final rule on April 15, 2019, (84 FR 15083), that implements four sections of the Agricultural Act of 2014 affecting eligibility, benefits, and program administration requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This document makes a technical correction to add the burden on SNAP individuals/households to report lottery or gambling winnings to State SNAP agencies to the burden details below based on a prior estimate in IC 0584–0064. It is estimated that a total of 27,500 participants, or 550 SNAP participants per State, will spend a total of 4,593 hours at a rate of .167 hours per response to report their substantial winnings to the State SNAP agency at a rate of $7.25 per hour for a total estimated cost of $33,296 for all respondents annually.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program: Student Eligibility,

Provisions of the Agricultural Act of 2014; Correction

AGENCY: Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), USDA.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document contains technical corrections to the Paperwork 
Reduction Act section of final rule entitled ``Supplemental Nutrition 
Assistance Program: Student Eligibility, Convicted Felons, Lottery and 
Gambling, and State Verification Provisions of the Agricultural Act of 
2014,'' published in the Federal Register on April 15, 2019.

DATES: 
    Effective date: This document is effective June 21, 2019.
    Compliance date: Compliance with the final rule published on April 
15, 2019 (84 FR 15083), and effective on June 14, 2019, is as noted in 
the specific regulatory provisions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sasha Gersten-Paal, Branch Chief, 
Certification Policy Branch, Program Development Division, Food and 
Nutrition Service (FNS), 3101 Park Center Drive, Room 810, Alexandria, 
Virginia 22302, (703) 305-2507, [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Food and Nutrition Service published a 
final rule on April 15, 2019, (84 FR 15083), that implements four 
sections of the Agricultural Act of 2014 affecting eligibility, 
benefits, and program administration requirements for the Supplemental 
Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This document makes a technical 
correction to add the burden on SNAP individuals/households to report 
lottery or gambling winnings to State SNAP agencies to the burden 
details below based on a prior estimate in IC 0584-0064. It is 
estimated that a total of 27,500 participants, or 550 SNAP participants 
per State, will spend a total of 4,593 hours at a rate of .167 hours 
per response to report their substantial winnings to the State SNAP 
agency at a rate of $7.25 per hour for a total estimated cost of 
$33,296 for all respondents annually. FNS utilized the estimate of .167 
hours to report a change based on a prior estimate in IC 0584-0064 on 
how long it takes a household to complete a simplified periodic report. 
FNS is not including the burden on SNAP individuals/households to 
reapply for benefits should they become eligible again. Since 
individuals/households applying for SNAP benefits are already required 
to report income and assets, the impact of this decision is negligible.

Need for Correction

    As published, the text in the Paperwork Reduction Act section of 
the final rule does not include the burden on SNAP individuals/
households to report lottery or gambling winnings to State SNAP 
agencies and requires a technical correction to the affected public, 
respondent type, number of responses, annual burden hours, and 
estimated cost to respondents.

    Respondent Type: State agencies, gaming entities, households.
