Assessing Equity in the Implementation of ABAWD Waivers
U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service
Health & Human Services

MSG supported the Food and Nutrition Service’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to build and analyze a database of States’ requests for waivers to the time limits in which participants who are able bodied and without dependents (ABAWD) can receive SNAP benefits in U.S. counties and reservations. MSG also examined the demographic and geographic features of these areas to identify any potential equity impacts and/or disparities that may exist regarding States’ requests for time limit ABAWD waivers.
