SNAP College Student Eligibility Webinar
March 4, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
On Thursday, March 4 from 12-1 p.m. Community Solutions will host a webinar about college students accessing food assistance benefits.
Up until now, many college students have been barred from accessing SNAP (food assistance) benefits. However, due to the pandemic, the USDA is allowing new flexibilities so low-income “traditional” students can temporarily qualify for benefits.
This webinar will focus on setting the stage for why college food insecurity is problematic, the logistics of the new flexibilities, how colleges are communicating the flexibilities to the students and how SNAP works for those new to this space.
Panelists are expected to include Chancellor Randy Gardner of the Ohio Department of Higher Education, Tracy Green, Vice President of Strategic and Institutional Development at Lorain County Community College, Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, the Executive Director for the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, Betsy Suver, Bureau Chief, SNAP and Cash Policy and Technical Assistance for the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and Hope Lane, Public Policy and External Affairs Associate with The Center for Community Solutions.
