Food Stamp Cuts Coming

October 31, 2013

LANSING, Mi. (My TV20 News at 10) --- Food stamp recipients getting help through Michigan's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (better known as 'SNAP') will see a cut in their monthly allotment starting Friday, November 1st.

In Michigan, about 1.7-million people are getting help through the SNAP program who are impacted by the cuts, and millions of others nationwide. For a family of four, it'll mean a reduction of about $34 a month.

The reason for the reduction is that federal funding that was a part of a 2007 economic stimulus package is ending.
