Use of this system without authority from DHS, or in excess of that authority, may result in the following: disciplinary action, including suspension without pay or dismissal; civil liability, including payment of damages, costs, and the reasonable attorney’s fees of the victim; and possible criminal penalties for willful violations.

By continuing to use this system, I am representing myself as an authorized requester from another state agency that is accessing this system to help in determining eligibility for federal SNAP or TANF programs. I understand that I am only permitted to use the data received from this system as required in my job and I will access, use, or disclose the data only as required to perform the duties of my job. I understand that the use of this data is regulated by the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and the misuse of information received from this system could result in civil and criminal penalties.
