(This amendment reduces $100,000 GF and $100,000 NGF from federal matching funds the first year to stagger the issuance of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (i.e., food stamps). The introduced budget included funding for one-time costs related to staggering the issuance of food stamp benefits over the first seven days of each month in order to relax the burden on retailers.)
