Detailed Objective: This project is designed to help States and large counties solve problems in their eligibility processes that make it difficult for low-income families to access and retain program benefits. The project provides support for a Food Stamp Program component in a study that addresses Medicaid and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) study is part of a broader endeavor, supported by the Robert J. Woods Foundation, that looks at promising program practices for food stamps, Medicaid, and SCHIP. A second "improving practices" stage of the broader research with the Robert J. Woods Foundation will involve site visits to six States, four of which have been identified as part of the foundation's activity, and two additional ones funded by ACF.
