LAST DAY to Comment on the Trump Administration’s Proposal to Cut SNAP !
Don’t let the Trump Administration cut the power of SNAP for hungry households.
The public comment period for USDA’s proposed rule on SNAP Standardization of State Heating and Cooling Standard Utility Allowances rule closes at midnight tonight. Submit your comment via FRAC’s comment page.
The proposed rule would cut SNAP benefits by a net total of $4.5 billion over five years. The cut would result from changes in how states take households’ utility costs into account in determining the amount of SNAP benefits for which they qualify. The proposed rule would cut the power of SNAP for hungry households and and disproportionately impact seniors and people with disabilities. It also sidesteps Congress’ intentions in the 2018 Farm Bill.
