53,000 NY residents could lose SNAP benefits this year

In NYS SNAP time limits were reinstated on January 1 and could mean the loss of SNAP for over 53,000 of our lowest-income residents.  Hunger Solutions New York has created a dedicated webpage for community organizations working with SNAP recipients and/or applicants.   This webpage contains a variety of tools and resources including a webinar recording, policy update, a checklist to determine if an individual is exempt from the time limits, and more.  This website will continue to be updated with new materials and resources as they become available.
