CONTINUED ELIGIBILITY
AH may review a household’s eligibility for continued participation in its programs through a process called “Recertification.” During the recertification process, AH does one or more of the following activities to confirm that the participant continues to meet AH eligibility requirements:
• Income review, verification, and calculation
• Determination of Work/Program Participation requirement compliance status

Recertification cycles occur biennially or triennially based on each household’s Work/Program Participation compliance status.
