    Florida has “made no effort” to apply for $820 million in pandemic SNAP benefits intended to help more than 2 million low-income children have enough to eat during the summer, making it one of only a handful of states ignoring the program, advocates said Tuesday.
    The funds, made available under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, would cover up to 90 days of summer break between school years — a one-time bonus of $375 in benefits per child under SNAP, the Supplemental Food Assistance Program, or food stamps. The benefit can be awarded retroactively.
    The Florida Department of Children and Families, which administers SNAP within the state, has not yet applied for the program, though it has had since April to do so.

    “The seven-day average of U.S. Covid deaths is 2,031 as of Tuesday, the first time over the 2,000 threshold since March, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
    Reported deaths are currently highest in large U.S. states like Florida, which is seeing an average of 376 daily deaths over the past week, and Texas, which is reporting a daily average of 283.
    Texas and Florida, combined, account for about one-third of the nationwide average.” https://www.cnbc.com/2021/09/22/average-daily-us-covid-deaths-cross-2000.html
