Virtually all states have made information regarding the Food Stamp Program, including their applications, state policy manuals or regulations, and general program information, available to the public via the World Wide Web. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (Washington, D.C.) reviewed each state’s web pages to determine what information and services they offer regarding the Food Stamp Program.
This paper lists the addresses for each state’s food stamp web pages and also provides an overview of the types of information and services that states provide. Those interested in expanding the services provided on their state’s web page may find the overview section helpful because it highlights the various features states offer, such as benefit calculators or office locators.
