Congress will receive a bill extending more emergency SNAP benefits

As the expiration of the emergency supplemental SNAP benefits cutoff in March drew near, the reduction in supplementary benefits is severely impacting Colorado households in need, according to Denver7’s interviews with beneficiaries, food banks, and government officials.

Benefits were cut by an average of $90 for each person, every month, for beneficiaries.

“I was aware that these emergency allocations were soon to come to an end. Yarida Caraveo, a Democrat from Colorado, stated, “I believe like so numerous others, it caught me off guard that they were finishing before the Emergency Declaration for COVID.

On Monday, she will introduce the “Keep Families Fed Act”.

“It states that the emergency allocation will remain for a further year once the measure has been passed. The USDA must submit a plan to each state’s SNAP agency, saying, “Here are guidelines and resources so that you could make the public alert and help them plan for the conclusion of the extension,” among other crucial requirements,” according to Caraveo.
