The latest information on SNAP/ Food Stamp advocacy in Massachusetts.

As 2023 winds down, I am writing to share with you that MLRI and La Colaborativa in Chelsea are teaming up (with Charles Group Consulting) to launch a 2023 Legislative and FY24 Budget Campaign to restore state-funded SNAP and TAFDC cash assistance benefits to legally present but federally-ineligible immigrants. Indeed, Massachusetts provided state-funded food and cash benefits to ineligible immigrants from 1997 through 2002 after the devasting impact of the 1996 Welfare Reform Law. But those state benefits sunset in 2022.  

We are reaching out with a lot of information - some of which is positive, and some of which will be extremely challenging for Massachusetts families in 2023.

Good morning, Hunger Free Campus Coalition advocates,

Massachusetts can make history in 2022 by passing a Hunger Free Campus Initiative this month!  

Tnx to all who attended the SNAP Coalition meeting this AM and Thnx to our friends at the Food Research and Action Center for leading the discussion on federal issues.
 

Greetings Coalition members. We have lots of important updates as 2022 comes to a close.
