Description
 
The value of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits has declined due to inflation since the increase in benefit size in April 2009 mandated by the Am. Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Earlier research documented improvements in food spending and food security from 2008 to 2009 that may have resulted from the ARRA SNAP-benefit increase. This report estimates the extent to which those gains may have been eroded from 2009 to 2011 as a result of the reduction in real value of SNAP benefits due to inflation in food prices. The decline in value of SNAP benefits may have resulted in an increase of 16.5% in the number of SNAP-recipient households with very low food security and a decline of 4.4% in median food spending by SNAP households. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
