145,000 Louisiana Households To See Decrease In SNAP Benefits
The Department of Children and Family Services Kinship Care Subsidy Program (KCSP) assists in cash worth $450 per month but due to the $50 decrease this might slightly affect the receivers of some households that are struggling and those who are in a tight budget might see the decrease as a small impact to them. Also, the decrease is not noticeable to some it is an announcement that families should know.
According to The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, currently, SNAP recipients do receive Emergency Allotments, which brings the people to the maximum benefit amount for their standard household size and will accordingly be monitored as to how many are in their home. Reductions in benefits for these households will be seen once the Public Health Emergency ends it will be noticeable when the Emergency Allotments expire.
