13 States With Republican Governors Opt Out of Summer Food Program for Kids, Idaho Capital Sun, June 29, 2024 Idaho and Utah are among 13 GOP-led states that have declined to participate in the new Summer EBT Program in the summer of 2024. The program will provide eligible families with $120 in federally funded grocery benefits for each school-age child who is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Kelsey Boone, senior child nutrition policy analyst at FRAC, says, “For most states, the trade-off ends up being that for all that’s being spent on administrative costs, the benefits of the program far outweighs it. I think there will be a lot of pushback and a lot of people reaching out to their state agencies and their state governors’ offices to ask them to run the program in 2025, and that will be very powerful.” Government Agencies/SNAP
