Nutrition Poverty & Family Economics
The US Department of Agriculture is considering changes to its Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) time limit rules for Able Bodied Adults Without Dependents, likely to make them harsher for individuals struggling to find adequate employment. First Focus explains how the SNAP time-limit, though it claims to target childless adults, unduly harms children, and advises against changes which will only reduce their access to this critical support.
