DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Food and Nutrition Service Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Title: Evaluation of Technology Modernization for SNAP Benefit Redemption through Online Transactions. OMB Control Number: 0584–NEW. Summary of Collection: Section 4011 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (The Farm Bill) mandated by Congress that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) conduct an Electronic Benefits Transfer Online Purchasing Pilot (referred to in this document as the SNAP Online Purchasing Pilot) to test the feasibility and implications of allowing retail food stores to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits through online transactions. The Farm Bill provided FNS and its stakeholders an opportunity to begin modernizing benefit redemption through online purchasing for SNAP. Need and Use of the Information: FNS seeks to learn how the seven retailer pilots operate, the implementation challenges and lessons learned, the characteristics of SNAP online customers, the risks and benefits of online purchasing for the integrity of SNAP, and the requirements for expansion. The results of this evaluation will inform FNS’ decisions about how to make SNAP online purchases more widely available, how to ensure the accessibility and quality of online purchases, and how to ensure that protections against abuse remain strong or grow stronger. Ultimately, the findings from this evaluation will help FNS in setting new requirements, policies, and procedures for authorization of online retailers.
