About 16.4 million people who receive federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits would not have a say in how to spend about half of their monthly benefits under President Donald Trump’s proposed budget for the 2019 fiscal year. Trump wants this and other SNAP changes to reduce the budget by $213 billion between the 2019 and 2028 fiscal years. The U.S. Department of Agriculture runs SNAP.
