Expanded SNAP Benefits During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Lessons Learned
Institute for Research on Poverty Webinar - Cindy Leung, Marianne Bitler, and Chloe Green
Wednesday, April 5, 2023
By March 1, 2023, all states will end the expanded SNAP benefits available during the first few years of the pandemic. Discussants in this webinar will examine the role of food assistance in the U.S. social safety net, how SNAP was adjusted to respond to public health and economic crises brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, assessments of those interventions, and how policymakers and practitioners can use lessons learned to improve on the program’s efficacy and impact moving forward.
