SPUR Opposes the Proposed Revision to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)December 3, 2019
The Federal Government's proposed changes to SNAP state heating and cooling utility allowances could result in more than 542,000 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 Certification Policy Branch to oppose the proposed changes.
