Trump Administration’s Poverty Line Proposal Would Cut Eligibility Benefits for Many Low-Income Households

The new federal poverty line rule proposed by the Trump administration that would change how the federal poverty line is measured would cut billions of dollars from federal health programs and cause millions of people to lose their eligibility for, or receive less help from, these programs. In addition, a significant number of low-income households, primarily in working families, would lose eligibility for federal nutrition assistance programs including SNAP (food stamps); the WIC nutrition program for low-income women, infants and children; and free school meals.
