More than 500,000 adults will lose SNAP benefits in 2016 as waivers expire
from Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
More than 500,000 and as many as 1 million of the nation’'s poorest people will be cut off SNAP over the course of 2016, due to the return in many areas of a three-month limit on SNAP benefits for unemployed adults aged 18-49 who aren't disabled or raising minor children. These individuals will lose their food assistance benefits after three months regardless of how hard they are looking for work. The impact will be felt in the 23 states that must or are choosing to reimpose the time limit in 2016.
