The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly called the Food Stamp Program, is designed primarily to increase the food purchasing power of eligible low-income households to help them buy a nutritionally adequate low-cost diet. This book describes the rules related to eligibility for SNAP benefits as well as the rules for benefits and their redemption.

This book also describes three kinds of unemployment benefits which are the regular Unemployment Compensation, Extended Benefit, and Emergency Unemployment Compensation. The book explains their basic eligibility requirements, benefits, and financing structure. (Imprint: Nova)
