Incentive Waiver Guidance: Offering Incentives To SNAP Recipients at SNAP Authorized Stores

This page explains the process for NON-GusNIP or other federally funded retailers who want to offer an incentive program based on SNAP. Because there is a rule against differential treatment for SNAP purchases, retailers who want to incentivize SNAP-based purchases need to apply for a waiver. This page offers instructions as to how. For organizations offering an incentive through GusNIP-funded programs or other federal funding, however, a waiver is not currently necessary. Please continue to check this page for the most updated rules.
