The TCCB recently submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regarding proposed rule changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The TCCB called upon the USDA to withdraw the rule changes affecting categorical eligibility or grant a demonstration waiver for state flexibility related to clients in innovative programs on the path to self-sufficiency. These proposed changes have the potential to affect 1.5 million food-insecure Texans who currently receive SNAP. Our letter also highlighted the impact of these rules on our implementation of HB 1483, the “Making Work Pay” bill that we worked with Catholic Charities Fort Worth to pass.
