Abstract: 

Welcome to the 10th Edition of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) State Options Report. This report summarizes information related to State policy and administrative options. SNAP’s statutes, regulations, and waivers provide State agencies with various policy options. State agencies use this flexibility to adapt their programs to meet the needs of eligible, low-income people in their States. Modernization and technology have provided States with new opportunities and options in administering the program. Certain options may facilitate program design goals, such as removing or reducing barriers to equal opportunity access for low-income families and individuals, providing better support for those working or looking for work. This flexibility helps States better target benefits to those most in need, streamline program administration and field operations, and coordinate SNAP activities with those of other programs.
