SNAP Stimulus Benefit Set to Expire October 31st
A temporary increase in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits enacted as part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will expire on October 31, which will result a $5 billion reduction in overall program spending for FY2014 and a cut of $29 per month for the average family of three. According to a report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the expiration of the benefit means thatSNAP participants will receive an average of less than $1.40 per person per meal in 2014.
