Re: 7 CFR 273.7, Interim Rule—SNAP: Employment and Training Program Monitoring, Oversight and Reporting Measures
RIN: 0584-AE33

Dear Ms. Johnston:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on USDA’s interim final rule on monitoring the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Employment and Training (E&T) programs.  As an organization committed to ending hunger in New York State, we have several concerns about the regulation and ask that USDA take steps to meaningfully improve the rule before implementation.
