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. Moreover, the book discusses how selected state agencies combat SNAP recipient fraud; the effectiveness of certain state fraud detection tools; and how the Food and Nutrition Service oversees state anti-fraud efforts.
