WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The National Grange cheered the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) enhanced efforts to fight food-stamp fraud. According to an Aug. 14 National Grange press release, the Grange reacted to the Aug. 9 announcement by Agriculture Undersecretary Kevin Concannon, in which he said new measures allow the department to impose strict financial sanctions on retailers that defraud the Supplemental Nutrition Association Program (SNAP) and supply resources, such as databases, to states to ensure the benefits of the program go to the intended individuals.

This announcement requires states complete certain tasks that ensure fraud and abuse are identified early and prevent ineligible people from participating in SNAP and other benefit programs.

The Supplemental Nutrition Association Program (SNAP) is the largest of the USDA’s 15 nutrition assistance programs. There are currently 46 million individuals participating in the program, up from the 28 million that were enrolled at the start of the recession in 2008.
