The SNAP Client Advisory Board works to improve the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through the expertise of program participants.

The Client Bill of Rights Campaign

Do you want to ensure folks are treated with respect and dignity when receiving services at the Oregon Department of Human Services? 

The SNAP Client Advisory Board has created a Client Bill of Rights campaign with the hope of enacting legislation that will ensure that all Oregonians seeking benefits are welcomed, supported, treated with respect and dignity, and provided with transparency while seeking assistance from the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS). 

About the SNAP Client Advisory Board

The SNAP Client Advisory Board provides a brave space for past, present, and future SNAP participants to improve the program for SNAP recipients. The board exists to make changes, hold decision-makers accountable, and ensure there is equitable access to SNAP for all. We do this by working together with advocates, community organizations, and lawmakers.

The SNAP Client Advisory Board:

  • Questions and assesses the impact and outcomes of rules, regulations, policies, structural and systemic change issues, and implementation of SNAP in Oregon.
  • Works with advocates, program administrators, and legislative bodies to influence decision-making about SNAP in Oregon.
  • Advocates for individuals and groups that are underrepresented and marginalized within SNAP.
  • Highlights the successes and areas for improvement of SNAP in Oregon.
  • Engages with SNAP participants out in the community to share their experiences, expertise, and needs.
