Infographic: New Work Requirements for New Mexico SNAP Participants Would Hurt Families

Photo: New Mexico Voices for Children
The New Mexico Voices for Children prepared an infographic in response to a proposal from  the state of New Mexico to expand work requirements for food stamp recipients. Under current law, childless adults ages 18 to 50, who are physically and mentally competent are required to enter an employment and training program to be eligible for SNAP benefits. The New Mexico Human Services Department would widen the range, making it ages 16 to 60, and add people with children over age seven who currently are exempt from the employment requirement. Opponents argue that the administration’s proposals go beyond what federal law requires and aren’t appropriate for one of the nation’s poorest states.
