FNS (SNAP) reductions went into effect on November 1 , 2013. The reductions occurred because of an end to the temporary boost in benefits that were part of the 2009 American Recovery & Reinvestment Act. North Carolina is expected to lose $166 million in benefits during the first year of reductions.
