Trump Administration Tightens Use of SNAP Work Requirement Waivers

The Trump administration announced Thursday it would provide additional restrictions on states’ use of waivers to get out of a requirement mandating able-bodied food stamp recipients to work to receive benefits for more than three months.

According to U.S. Department of Agriculture data, two Indiana stores were permanently disqualified from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program in 2017. In both cases, federal documents showed store personnel were caught exchanging Indiana SNAP benefits for cash.
