Food Stamp Program: Eligibility and Certification Provisions of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002; Approval of Information Collection Request
The final rule entitled, Food Stamp Program: Eligibility and Certification Provisions of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, was published on January 29, 2010. This final rule implemented 11 provisions of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (FSRIA), which established new eligibility and certification requirements for the receipt of food stamps. Those provisions simplified program administration, allowed States greater flexibility, and provided enhanced access to eligible populations. The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 changed the program name from Food Stamp Program to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) cleared the associated information collection requirements on March 26, 2010. This document announces approval of the ICR.
