SNAP by State
The Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) is one of the most efficient and effective government programs. Each year it helps 40 million Americans put food on the table. Some elected leaders are pushing extreme proposals that would radically restructure SNAP and other essential benefits, forcing many families to lose vital assistance.
These fact sheets provide state-by-state data on how SNAP reduces poverty and provides positive outcomes for recipients, how harsh time limits make it harder for people to find jobs, and provides alternative policies that would help reduce poverty for those who use SNAP and/or similar government programs.
