SNAP Under Threat; Speak Up to Protect Food Assistance

SNAP Under Threat; Speak Up to Protect Food Assistance

The Trump Administration has proposed a regulation that would take away food assistance from over 750,000 people. It would weaken the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), making it harder for people who are unemployed or underemployed—or who can’t keep up with paperwork requirements—to keep their assistance.

Public comments are the best way to push back. The administration is legally required to read and address every comment on a proposed regulation. You can show the administration their proposal is unpopular and would hurt communities nationwide.

CLASP strongly opposes the USDA proposed regulation to limit SNAP for adults without dependents or documented disabilities. As antipoverty experts, we believe the proposed changes will not incentivize people to seek and maintain work, and will have damaging consequences for the well-being and long-term success of struggling workers and their families.
