ADVOCACY – A voice for low-income Missourians

The Federal Farm Bill and the Future of SNAP
Debate on the federal Farm Bill is currently underway in the United States Congress. In mid-June, the House version of the bill passed by a narrow margin of just two votes, and on June 28, the Senate passed their own version of the bill by a vote of 86-11.  The Senate version of the bill is a significant improvement from the House bill – see newsletter on how the Senate bill affirms that SNAP is one of our nation’s most powerful and effective poverty-reduction programs, and it builds on the strong history of SNAP by dedicating more funding for states to try innovative solutions to help SNAP participants get and keep a job.

See Save and Strengthen SNAP to learn more about the Farm Bill and for updates and action alerts hosted by Empower Missouri
