DSS Food Stamp Program Recognized With Award for Accuracy

June 18, 2009

06.18.09 - The Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services' Food Stamp Program recently received the Program Integrity Award for its commitment to payment accuracy at the 2009 Tri-Regional Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Conference. DSS had fewer errors in making payments to Food Stamp recipients, closing existing Food Stamp cases and denying Food Stamps to an applicant than any other state in the USDA's Food and Nutrition Services' (FNS) Southwest region.
