Limiting SNAP Benefits

The 3-month time limit on SNAP benefits for able-bodied adults without dependents ("ABAWDs") is resurfacing around the country. In this month's Advocacy Exchange, we talked with Saima Akhtar of the Empire Justice Center and Andrew Hammond and MacKenzie Speer of the Shriver Center about how advocates can make sure that the time limit is implemented properly and that clients with significant barriers to work do not lose this vital food assistance. Watch now.

For more on this topic, be sure to read Andrew Hammond and MacKenzie Speer's Clearinghouse article, SNAP's Time Limit: Emerging Issues in Litigation and Implementation.
