SNAP has limited funding
Last week the NewsSourse reported that the WIC program in Tennessee has funding to last through January....and now we are told the same is true for the SNAP program. If the government is not reopened before February, millions of Americans who receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program -- the nation's food stamp program -- could have their assistance disrupted. Although SNAP has been renewed, it has not been allocated funding from Congress beyond January. In September 2018, the last month for which data is available, $4.7 billion in SNAP benefits were disbursed in Tennessee. If the shutdown continues through March, there will be no remaining funding for SNAP, endangering food security for millions of Americans.
