Abstract:
As Electronic Benefits Transfer usage expands with national implementation, there has been increased interest in possible alternatives and refinements to current retailer management activities. This report documents the Retailer Compliance Management Demonstrations in EBT-ready states. In these demonstrations, the state food stamp agencies in New Mexico and South Carolina assumed responsibility for managing the participation of food retailers in the Food Stamp Program, a task previously managed by the federal government. The report describes these demonstrations and evaluates their results.
