SNA Comments on Proposed Revision of Categorical Eligibility


SNA submitted comments in response to the USDA Proposed Rule: Revision of Categorical Eligibility in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNA is concerned this Proposed Rule will result in many needy children losing access to free school meals and some schools that have successfully implemented the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) losing access to this valuable program. SNA is also concerned that school nutrition professionals will be burdened with substantial increased workloads and costs from outreach, paperwork and processing of applications for impacted families. Included in the comment letter, are several recommendations should the Proposed Rule be finalized.
