Hot off the press is a PDF version of an electronic letter that Department of Higher Ed (DHE) Commissioner Carlos Santiago sent last night to 94,000 MA low income college students. His letter also shares his personal story using SNAP as a college student for his family. The DHE electronic letter was sent to the college students that DHE identified with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $0. Note, some of these students may already be getting SNAP – so we do not know how many students will be new to SNAP benefits.
