From USDA: SNAP Authorization – Operational Adjustment - Supporting Documentation

At this time, we continue to process new applications for SNAP authorization within relatively normal bounds. However, due to conditions related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) National Emergency , FNS is reducing the volume of hard-copy documents that are processed in support of retailer authorization and reauthorization. This interim change is being implemented to ensure timely processing of applications and requests for information, and to protect the health and safety of individuals who would otherwise be required to work in close proximity while scanning and uploading documents on behalf of retailers.
This change has two immediate affects:
  • Applicant retailers will be required to upload documents using the functionality of the Online Store Application (OSA); and
  • Newly authorized retailers will receive confirmation of their authorization through an email that will direct them to a new webpage,, where they will be able to access the materials that have generally been included in a welcome packet.

All the important updates you need to know as an Ohio Liquor partner.
Preparation for New Prices - April 1

Agencies must update their spirituous liquor products price file prior to the start of business on April 1.
Agencies should ‘Get All Prices’ as early as possible on April 1, which can be as early as 12:01 a.m., April 1. Do NOT ‘Get All Prices’ before 12:01 a.m. on April 1. Doing so will result in receiving the March price file again.
The process to update pricing in the retail terminal depends on whether Agencies have Clover or a different integrated system.
For Agencies with Clover:
·     Download the updated price file using the Clover Station
·     Tap the Ohio DOLC 2.0 app
·     Enter Web API credentials if prompted
·     Tap the ‘Get All Prices’ option to update prices – this process could take as long as 60 minutes
·     Tap the sync button on each additional Clover (if applicable) to make sure each additional Clover syncs the new prices
For Agencies with an integrated system:
·     Agencies must work with their integrators to ensure prices are updated.
·     Integrators have access to the ‘Get All Prices’ Web API (source for prices) to obtain the information to update the Agency's price file.
·     Agencies should ensure their integrator schedules the ‘Get All Prices’ service overnight, and that the update is completed before business resumes on Mar.
Below is a list of products to test, ensuring your price file updated correctly:
