FIGHT HUNGER – STRENGTHEN SNAP!

The Farm Bill passed in Dec. 2018 and you helped us protect the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Unfortunately, in 2019 and 2020 the USDA proposed rule changes that, if implemented, will take food away from those who are simply trying to make ends meet. These rule changes will mostly harm seniors and people with disabilities and forward policies that were considered and rejected by Congress when it passed the 2018 Farm Bill.

 

SNAP Time Limit Rule Change

The Trump Administration's first proposed SNAP rule change would have drastically limited states’ ability to provide SNAP to “Abled-bodied Adults without Dependents” (ABAWDs). On October 19, 2020, a federal judge vacated the rule change after determining it was “capricious and arbitrary” adding that it would have "exponentially" increased food insecurity for tens of thousands of Americans and imposed significant costs on states.
