The Relationship Between SNAP and Work Among Low-Income Households

The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) was designed to "increase the food purchasing power of eligible low-income households in order to improve their nutrition and alleviate hunger and malnutrition." This report, written by Dottie Rosenbaum, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, makes the case that not only does SNAP increase low-income families' access to nutrition, it also supports the ability of recipients to find paying work. Readers may like to begin by reading through the short article, which summarizes data from a mid-2000s survey of participating households, using colorful and easily readable graphs and charts to illustrate important points. For those who would like more information, the full 36-page report is available as a downloadable PDF.
