Dear SNAP Coalition members:

This is just a brief reminder of our upcoming SNAP Coalition meeting on Tuesday, April 13th from 10 to 11:30 AM.  We will have a robust agenda with updates on the SNAP emergency allotments, P-EBT and federal and state legislative updates.   See Zoom link below. 

Please also see FRAC’s alert below on urging members of Congress to support in the next COVID-19 Relief Package a) Healthy School Meals for All, b) long term investments in SNAP and c) permanent  Child Tax Credit improvements.

Apologies if you have reregistered or saved the date.
