Cut to Federal Nutrition Assistance Impacts Families and Children in Every PA County

A major funding cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) took effect November 1, 2013, impacting 1.8 million Pennsylvanians. SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, is our nation’s first line of defense against hunger and a powerful tool to help keep families out of poverty. Benefits are modest, offering many Pennsylvania families a crucial bridge in this slow economic recovery.

Below is a map of Pennsylvania detailing county by county how many people, households, and children are impacted by the cut to SNAP. Hover your mouse over the name of each county for more details or download this table listing county impacts.
