The Facts on SNAP, Part 3: SNAP Is Efficient


From the site:

  • SNAP has one of the most rigorous quality control systems of any public benefit program. Each year, states pull a representative sample of cases (totaling about 50,000 nationally) and review their decisions on which applicants received benefits and how much.  Federal officials then double-check a subsample of the cases.  States face federal financial sanctions if they don’t lower high error rates.
