SNAP Coalition meeting TODAY 10 AM and MLRI slide deck on SNAP application denial data
We are looking forward to seeing many of you at 10 AM today. We will be joined by the new Food Research and Action Center's (FRAC) SNAP Director Salaam Bhatti for a federal update, as well as DTA Commissioner McCue and some of his team.
Note that the Guv's FY25 Budget comes out tomorrow (Wednesday), and we know many of the Coalition members' priorities are waiting for that reveal as the kick off event for the FY25 budget deliberations. Fingers and toes crossed.
Here's the Coalition meeting ZOOM link again.
SNAP access barriers:
During the meeting, we will be discussing access barriers households are facing in getting their SNAP applications approved. Click here for an advance peek at MLRI's slides summarizing data from DTA on application denials for each application source - online, by phone, in-person, through MassHealth checkbox, mail etc). Huge TNX to Vicky Negus for preparing this presentation. During today's Coalition meeting, we will be reviewing this data and discussing DTA application denials. Please bring your ideas, concerns and recommendations to share with DTA!
