Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP): Improved Oversight of State Eligibiliy Expansions Needed
Kay E. Brown (au)
Over the last 10 years, participation in the U.S. Dept. of Agricultureäó»s (USDA) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), previously known as the Food Stamp Program, has more than doubled, and costs have quadrupled. Since 1999, USDA has allowed states to expand SNAP eligibility by adopting broad-based categorical eligibility (BBCE) policies, which make households that receive services funded by Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) categorically eligible for SNAP. Under BBCE policies, states are able to increase federal SNAP limits on household income and remove limits on assets. Although USDA has encouraged states to adopt BBCE to improve SNAP access and administration, little is known about the effects of these policies. This report assessed: (1) To what extent are households that would otherwise be ineligible for SNAP deemed eligible for the program under BBCE? (2) What effect has BBCE had on program costs? (3) What are the program integrity implications of BBCE? Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
