Reaching Underserved Elderly and Working Poor in SNAP - FY 2009 Pilots

The Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (P.L.


111-8) provides funds for the USDA Food andNutrition Service (FNS) to test a wider range of approaches on a larger scale to identifysuccessful models for expanding access to SNAP1 among two key underserved populations—eligible households with


elderly members (persons who are age 60 years and older) and eligiblehouseholds with adult members who are working or are looking for work (working poorhouseholds).

This project will build on the promise of prior research2 which demonstrated thefeasibility of increasing SNAP participation among the low-income elderly in a few small sites.
