Trump Administration’s Proposed Rule Would Harm 3SquaresVT

Last month, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) proposed a rule that would jeopardize SNAP (known in Vermont as 3SquaresVT) benefits for over 750,000 Americans by making it even harder for some unemployed and underemployed workers to access benefits when they have trouble finding steady work.
