CHN comments on the SNAP proposed rule on Standard Utility Allowance (SUA)
December 4, 2019
USDA should not seek to reduce the value of the SUA in any state, but should consider appropriate steps to increase benefits in certain states. USDA should be strengthening the positive impacts of SNAP for health, well-being and economic activity, not making cuts to SNAP benefits. The members of the Coalition on Human Needs strongly oppose the proposed rule and request the USDA withdraw the rule and work with states to improve their SUA’s under existing flexibility.
