Food Typically Purchased With the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

Over 20 million households receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits from the Federal government each month. This study examined point-of-sale (POS) food purchase data to determine what foods SNAP participants typically purchase and how these purchases compare to those made by non-SNAP households. By using POS data to compare the purchases of SNAP households to those of non-SNAP households, the current study provided more detail on food expenditure patterns than previous studies.

Business Process Reengineering Services (BPR)

As state budgets have shrunk and assistance program caseloads grown, many states and counties are having difficulty meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) application, recertification, and case management processes. It is critical that state SNAP managers look for improved ways to improve efficiency and better serve eligible households.

Evaluation of Workforce Training Programs in Ohio and Wisconsin

IMPAQ studied the effectiveness of six workforce training programs supported by National Fund for Workforce Solutions (NFWS) through a Social Innovation Fund (SIF) grant. These programs provide training to unemployed workers to help them get jobs in health care, advanced manufacturing, and construction. The IMPAQ study included two components: (1) examine the characteristics and outcomes of participants in 30 NFWS/SIF programs in nine states; and (2) perform a quasi-experimental impact study of six selected programs in Ohio and Wisconsin.
