Food-Insecure Americans at Increased Risk

Food-Insecure Americans at Increased Risk

The Food Research and Action Center has issued a call to action: comments in opposition to a proposed new regulation that could restrict or suspend access to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for at least a million food-insecure households.  USDA’s proposed rule on SNAP Standardization of State Heating and Cooling Standard Utility Allowances would cut program benefits by a total of $4.5 billion over five years. This 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. Join FRAC in submitting comments against the proposed rule, at the following link:
