Contact your Members of Congress (House and Senate) and urge them to support by putting SNAP among the priority programs for any COVID-19 package. 

For House members, ask them to sign the letter and for House all Senators, urge them to support SNAP in any future COVID-19 relief packages. Any COVID-19 economic recovery package must build on SNAP’s economic stimulus effects by:
1. 
Boosting SNAP maximum benefits by 15 percent
2. Increasing the minimum SNAP benefit from $16 to $30
3. Suspending all SNAP administrative rules that would terminate or weaken benefits
