NEWS! The 2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act temporarily expands SNAP eligibility to include students who either:
- Are eligible to participate in state or federally financed work study during the regular academic year, as determined by the higher education institution; or
- Have an expected family contribution (EFC) of zero in the current academic year. This includes students who are eligible for a maximum Pell Grant.
The temporary exemptions will be in effect until 30 days after the Covid public health emergency is lifted. More information can be found on the SNAP benefits for students webpage and Q&A on student eligibility. - From the Community College Daily
