USDA Says Nutrition Assistance Programs Becoming More Efficient

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports increased efficiencies and cost-saving measures in nutrition assistance programs administered by USDA.

Audrey Rowe, administrator of USDA's Food and Nutrition Service, recently testified before the Senate Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development and Food and Drug Administration. She said the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps) payment error rate improved from 8.9 percent to 3.8 percent and fraud dropped from 4 percent to 1 percent.

The Academy continues to discuss these and other issues, like the Women Infants and Children program and School Meals program, with USDA officials and members of Congress.
