RAISE THE SNAP MINIMUM BENEFIT TO $100/mo (A.6214 / S. 7663)

The current SNAP minimum benefit of $23 a month is inadequate for low-income New Yorkers. Amounting to less than a dollar a day, the SNAP minimum benefit fails to account for New York’s true cost of living.

Raising the minimum monthly benefit to $100 will benefit nearly 110,000 households, enabling families to better afford groceries and stimulating local economies across the state.

WE CALL ON NEW YORK STATE to strengthen SNAP by raising the minimum benefit to $100/mo.
