Abstract

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provided benefits to an average of more than 46 million recipients per month and accounted for 52 percent of USDA’s spending during fiscal year 2014. Payments under USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) nearly quadrupled between 2001 and 2013, after adjusting for inflation, growing rapidly during and immediately after the Great Recession. Recent ERS research found that SNAP redemptions were associated with increased local employment—with $10,000 of redemptions contributing to 0.4 additional urban jobs and 1.0 additional rural jobs.
