88,000 WA households could lose food stamps under proposed rule change
The Trump Administration is proposing a new rule as to who gets access to SNAP, a federal food assistance program. Washington is among the top states that will be impacted by the rule change.
The administration says it’s to fix loopholes and create accountability.
An estimated 88,000 households would lose benefits.
According to the non-profit Food Lifeline, one in five children in Washington are currently food insecure, meaning they don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
The last day for public comment on the proposed rule is September 23.
