TEFAP Paper Form Update

Member Services

Jul 07, 2020

During emergency situations, such as the COVID-19 public health emergency, there are flexibilities available to network partners to assist them in continuing to provide food for people in need. Currently, the State of Ohio has increased participant eligibility to 230 percent of the federal poverty guideline and allows program staff or volunteers to sign on behalf of food recipients.

The state has also determined that the current form, at 230 percent of the federal poverty level, will remain in use. This means a new version of the TEFAP form will NOT be released in July 2020. The current TEFAP form is available by clicking here.
