Applicants of Nutrition Program Ensured Rights

WASHINGTON (CN) - The Food and Nutrition Service has amended the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) regulations that secure civil rights protections for SNAP households and applicants.

The change is required by an amendment made to the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act which specifically enumerates four statutory protections that must be complied with by state agencies in administering the program.

The change to the regulations is not expected to have an implementation impact on SNAP state agencies, as they have been subject to such statutes for several years.
