Webinar focuses on helping struggling families get ahead by protecting SNAP
Sep 5, 2019
Join the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger and Community Legal Services, for a webinar on how you can submit a comment opposing the proposed new SNAP rule on Thursday, September 5th at 11 am. The webinar will walk participants through the newly announced Broad Based Categorical Eligibility rule, which would (1) re-impose a cliff effect on working families with incomes slightly higher than the poverty level — making them potentially worse off if they get a raise or more hours of work, and (2) re-impose an asset test that traps poor people in poverty, punishing them for saving for a rainy day.
