ZERO TO THREE Comments on Proposed SNAP Rule Change
ZERO TO THREE submitted public comments in response to a notice of proposed rulemaking that would rescind states' ability to elect to adopt broad-based categorical eligibility in SNAP.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) plays a critical role in addressing childhood hunger and food insecurity in communities across the country and is the first line of defense against hunger for the majority of low-income infants, toddlers, and their families.
