The federal government shutdown is not currently impacting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, in Kewaunee County. Human Services Department Director Bob Mattice says his department operations are running as normal including processing SNAP applications. Mattice says, however, he is concerned about the impact of a long-term shutdown.
Mattice says most of the information he's heard about SNAP funding levels has come from national news reports. He says he has not heard anything from the federal or state agencies that oversee SNAP.
