3.6 million Floridians Expected to Have Food Stamp Cuts

About 3.6 million Floridians who use food stamps to purchase their monthly groceries will see a cut in their benefits come Nov. 1, the Orlando Sentinel reports.  This round of cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will leave a family of four with approximately $36 less per month. The cuts are coming because federal stimulus spending ordered during the Great Recession is coming to an end.

The 3.6 million Floridians who rely on food stamps each month will see their benefits cut on Nov. 1 — and bigger cuts might be coming.

The initial reduction in food-stamp benefits — known as SNAP for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — is the result of an end to federal stimulus spending passed in 2009 to boost the economy during the Great Recession. Though the amount of the cuts varies according to family size, income and expenses, a family of four will receive about $36 less each month, or $432 less per year.
