HELP: MLP Weighs in on SNAP Proposed Rule

On October 3, 2019, the Food and Nutrition Service published a proposed rule, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP): Standardization of State Heating and Cooling Standard Utility Allowances, that will have detrimental impacts on low-income families across the country. HELP: MLP strongly opposes this proposed rule and urges that the Administration withdraw it. In addition to the suffering and hardship that would result from taking away basic food assistance from 19% of SNAP households nationwide, it would have a very dangerous impact on the health and well-being of many pregnant women, parents, infants, and children. Comments on the rule will be accepted until December 2, 2019. We encourage advocates to voice their concerns about these changes.
