Despite SNAP’s modest benefits - only about $1.40 on average per person per meal - it’s a critical foundation for millions of low-income families, senior citizens, and people with disabilities who use its benefits to put food on the table each month. There are a number of problems with converting SNAP to a block grant, or with other changes that would cap SNAP’s funding or merge it with other programs, as some House Republican leaders have proposed. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities detail these problems in a new blog, paper and a video.

SNAP
Disabled New Yorkers rank among our most vulnerable populations, often burdened with enormous medical bills, and mental and physical restrictions that make holding down a job difficult or impossible. Many of these people find themselves having to choose between paying their monthly bills and getting proper nutrition. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can help to lessen that worry by stretching food dollars for low-income individuals and families. The Nutrition Application and Education Program (NOEP), managed by Hunger Solutions New York, can help to simplify the SNAP education process for people with disabilities.
