Pennsylvania Recognized by the USDA for Excellence in Providing Nutritional Assistance
Date:3/2/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Building on a proven track record of success, Department of Public Welfare Secretary Estelle B. Richman today announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture has recognized Pennsylvania for achieving a 75 percent participation rate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, while maintaining a low payment error rate.

"We are pleased to have earned the recognition of the USDA once again for our efforts to ensure the basic nutritional needs of low income eligible families are being met," said Secretary Richman. "Our staff deserves credit for continually working harder and smarter to help the more than one million Pennsylvanians who rely on this program every day."

Over the past two years, Pennsylvania has improved from being below the national participation average to being substantially above and achieving one of the highest two year increases in the U.S.

The Department of Public Welfare administers the Food Stamp program through 95 county assistance offices statewide and provides SNAP benefits to low-income and disabled individuals and families, including working families, who need help with food expenses.
