Report on state Food Stamp participation rates for 2003

Date:

Mathematica report of November 2005 on State Food Stamp Participation Rates for 2003. No surpises here, for the FOURTH year in a row, Massachusetts is IN THE DOG HOUSE! 51st after all states and DC!!! The Bay State CAP program increased the state's FS caseload by 50,000 since February of 2005 - through automation of food stamps to SSI recipients using data SSA collects for SSI recipients (no separate application, no interview, no verifications). But we are likely still in the lower quadrant even for 2005, and especially for non-SSI individuals and low wage families.
