If an applicant HH has failed to appear for the initial interview, a “Notice of Missed Appointment” will be sent by the caseworker to notify the HH that it missed the first appointment.  The notice also will inform the applicant that he/she must contact the county office and schedule a second appointment within the processing timeframe or the application will be denied.  The application will be held pending until the end of the month (if filed by the 15th) or for 30 days (if filed after the 15th).  If the applicant household does not schedule a second interview appointment, or if the applicant fails to appear for this second appointment after requesting it, deny the Food Stamp application.
