Food Stamp Program: Various Factors Have Led to Declining Participationby Lawrence J. Dyckman, Richard Cheston
Participation in the Food Stamp (FS)Program has dropped over the last few years. Because of concerns that states efforts to reduce their welfare caseloads may have diminished eligible childrens participation in the FS program, this report examines the reasons for the recent drop in FS participation, & any problems that households with eligible children have experienced in obtaining FS. This report analyzed the responses to a questionnaire sent to the 50 states & the D.C.; obtained data & reports on FS participation from the Food & Nutrition Service (FNS); & surveyed each of the FNS's 7 offices, which oversee implementation of the FS program.
