From March 2020 through June 2022, Ohio has had waivers from the United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Services to not issue Interim Reports to assistance groups. As of July 1, 2022, Ohio’s waivers will end, and Ohio will no longer request extensions.
As a result, Interim Reports will be issued to assistance groups beginning in early July and county work will return to pre-pandemic responsibilities. As previously, assistance groups will have to return the completed Interim Reports to the county agencies by the due date listed on the Interim Reports.
You can complete your Interim Report via the Self-Service Portal using these easy to follow instructions.

You can now use the secure ConnectEBT app which is associated and connected directly with your official account. To download the app, see the image below.
