SNAP Supplement for Seniors Back in Budget

We posted earlier that the the State Legislature's recommended budget HB2 eliminated $1.2 million needed to fund the State SNAP Supplement program which serves about 12,000 seniors and increases their minimum federal benefit of $16 to $25 per month. According to Ruth Hoffman of the Lutheran Advocacy Ministry-New Mexico, the funding was restored to HB2 before the budget bill went to the governor.
