Confused by changes to the SNAP ABAWD rule? Don’t worry – here’s a handy guide!

This abrupt change to the ABAWDs rule has prompted both fear and confusion. Whose benefits are at risk? How can I help ABAWD clients and community members protect their SNAP benefits? Where do I get the facts?

This straightforward, well-designed one-pager can help you find answers to your ABAWD questions. Download it, print it, and share it with your network and community!
