The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides food assistance to millions of low-income individuals and families. In addition to meeting nutrition needs, the program lifts people out of poverty and generates economic activity. Despite strong success, SNAP is frequently at risk. CLASP fights back against SNAP cuts as well as policies that restrict access to benefits. We also support state efforts to ensure more people get and keep the benefits for which they’re eligible. And we help states understand opportunities and requirements under SNAP Employment and Training programs, which combine nutrition assistance with job training services.
