Guam - If you're on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,
better known as food stamps, brace yourselves for cuts.
According to the Department of Public Health and Social Services,
benefits will decrease starting November 1.
This follows the expiration of the American Recovery and Reinvestment
of 2009 which raised snap benefits to help those affected by the recession.
For you at home, this could mean a deduction of anywhere from $16 for
a household of one or $97 for households of eight depending on income,
household size, and expenses.
