More than 100,000 of the state’s poorest adults could be cut off the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in 2016 due to the return of a harsh three-month time limit for childless, non-disabled adults aged 18-49. These adults will lose their food aid after three months if they can’t find a job, job-training program, or volunteer opportunity for 20 hours per week—regardless of labor market and economic conditions in their community.
