With the cuts to SNAP benefits coming in November due to the expiration of the ARRA SNAP increase, it will be even more important to maximize resources for low income households and avoid the "heat versus eat" dilemma. Go to www.masslegalservices.org/arra for more information on the SNAP ARRA cut and tips for screening households to maximize benefits. Additionally, if you know of SNAP recipients willing to speak with reporters about the impact of the ARRA SNAP cut on their benefits, please contact me, email@example.com We really need stories from around the state to underscore how harmful the November SNAP cut is and why Congress should both restore the ARRA boost in benefits and defend against any further SNAP cuts!
