More PA Students Eligible for SNAP Benefits

The Wolf Administration has announced an expansion to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). In a press briefing regarding the temporary policy change in The Commonwealth today, officials say SNAP will now cover certain students that would qualify financially by family income but wouldn’t qualify due to being a student. Under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, college students who are eligible for a state or federal work study program, or students who have an estimated family contribution of zero dollars on their federal student aid determination, are now eligible for SNAP.
