Thanks for posting. Verifies it.
Now is this for the debt default or is this even if a debt agreement is worked out but the current ‘shutdown’ continues?
The SNAP shutdown plan claims that SNAP funds have been forward funded and there is funding from fiscal year 2013 that will last for the entire fiscal year 2014.
From the USDA plan:
“In addition, about $2 billion in contingency funding will be available and could be used to support State Administrative activities essential to continue the program and issue and process benefits. These contingency funds were provided in the FY 2013 appropriation and do not expire until the end of FY 2014.”
“Could be used to support State Administrative activies essential to continue the program...?
Sounds like Utah found out it won’t be paid for SNAP administration if the debt ceiling isn’t raised.
