SPUR Opposes Revised Eligibility Rules for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)September 25, 2019
The Federal Government's proposed changes to SNAP categorical eligibility could result in more than 250,000 people in California losing access to food assistance. It would also directly, and negatively, impact the low-income families and grocery stores participating in SPUR's Double Up Food Bucks Program. SPUR supports maximizing enrollment in federally funded food assistance programs and the administration should be working to expand eligibility not shrink it. SPUR urges the SNAP Program Design Board to oppose the proposed changes.
