Comment on USDA’s Notice of Proposed Rule regarding Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP) Standardization of State Heating and Cooling Standard Utility Allowances.

December 3, 2019

On behalf of Heartland Alliance, we appreciate the opportunity to comment on USDA's Notice of Proposed Rule regarding Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP) Standardization of State Heating and Cooling Standard Utility Allowances. The proposed rule would exacerbate the struggles many of people experiencing poverty and with low incomes have paying for costs of both food and utilities. It would have harmful impacts on health and well-being as well as on the economy. The proposed rule is deeply flawed and should be withdrawn.

Comments in Opposition to Proposed Rulemaking: Revision of Categorical Eligibility in the SNAP Program

September 23, 2019

This is a response in opposition to proposed rulemaking that would make eligibility changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The proposed changes would cause serious harm to Heartland Alliance participants, Illinoisans experiencing hunger and poverty—including hundreds of thousands of working Illinoisans who are not earning enough to make ends meet—and millions of people across the country. In addition to taking away food assistance from millions of individuals, this proposed rule would make it more difficult for low-income individuals to save for the future, inequitably harm people of color and especially women of color, and greatly increase administrative burdens on agencies already operating at capacity. For these reasons, we believe the proposed rule should be withdrawn.

This understanding fueled thoughtful, involved conversations about the barriers for people experiencing poverty and the solutions that need to be in place to give people real opportunity.
