Food Stamp Program Access Study
ERS project representative: Margaret Andrews
E-FAN No. (03013) ,
The plummeting food stamp caseload of the late 1990s fixed policymakers’ and analysts’ attention on the policies and practices of local food stamp offices as possible barriers to participation. With funding from USDA’s Economic Research Service, Abt Associates Inc. and Health Systems Research, Inc., examined the extent to which local office policies and practices affect households’ decisions to apply for food stamps and to continue participating once they are approved for food stamp benefits. This set of reports presents the results of the study.
