As the COVID-19 pandemic approaches its one year mark, the government agencies responsible for administering various safety net programs are still continually adapting their practices and procedures in response to the unique demands of administering public benefits in challenging and unusual circumstances. However, a number of these constantly shifting procedures and practices may have serious procedural due process implications. This panel will discuss whether and how recipients' of various public benefits programs procedural due process rights are being protected during the COVID-19 crisis. The speakers will address SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, and cash assistance.
