Income from Boarders

A SNAP household receives boarding income when it runs a commercial boarding house or furnishes lodging and meals in exchange for a reasonable monthly payment.

Countable Income

Boarder income includes all direct payments to the household. This includes payments for rooms, meals, or any contributions for shelter expenses. It does not include expenses the boarder pays to someone outside the household. Exclude 50% of the boarder payment as a business expense.
