Free Webinar: Legal Basics: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
When: Tuesday, January 31, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. P.T./2:00-3:00 p.m. E.T.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program) is our nation's most effective and widest-reaching anti-hunger program, providing participants with a monthly benefit to purchase food and reducing overall food insecurity by as much as 30%. Older adults who participate in SNAP receive on average $104 per month to help put food on the table. But more than half of older adults who qualify to receive SNAP are missing out on benefits—an estimated 5 million people in all.
This training will explain the SNAP benefit with a focus on how it serves older adults, how to help clients access the program and receive the maximum benefit amount, and tips and strategies for overcoming access barriers.
Participants in this free webcast will be able to:
· Understand who the SNAP program serves;
· Understand recent changes and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on SNAP eligibility and benefits;
· Identify barriers to enrollment that seniors face and ways to overcome those barriers;
· Outline the process to determine SNAP eligibility; and
· Identify common problems that may require an appeal.
· Brandy Bauer, National Council on Aging
· Trinh Phan, Justice in Aging

Moving Beyond COVID-19: Considerations for using PHE Flexibilities to Improve Person-Centered Care
Fri, Mar 3, 2023 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM PST
In the early days of the pandemic, federal and state governments quickly implemented regulatory flexibilities to ensure that Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries could receive care safely and in their own community. As policymakers prepare for the eventual end of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), federal and state policymakers will need to determine the path forward for the Medicare and Medicaid flexibilities that were implemented in response to the immediate needs of the pandemic. This virtual public event will feature a diverse panel of experts to discuss considerations for using the PHE flexibilities to improve person-centered, equitable care for older adults. This event will include insights from the recently produced “Leveraging COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Flexibilities to Advance Person-Centered Care for Older Adults and People with Complex Care Needs: A Roadmap for Policymakers”.
