Fight SNAP Fraud
USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works aggressively with State and Federal partners to crack down on fraud and hold bad actors accountable for misusing tax payer dollars. Correcting mistakes and getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse are top priorities and basic common sense.
Americans support helping struggling families put food on the table, but they also want to know taxpayer dollars are spent wisely. FNS’ proactive strategies protect the Federal investment
in SNAP and ensure that the program is targeted towards individuals and families who need it the most.
While the vast majority of SNAP retailers and recipients play
by the rules, any fraud weakens public confidence in
government and the program. This hurts the ability of SNAP to serve over 47 million people who rely on the program to obtain healthy food. As part of the Administration’s new Campaign to Cut Waste,
FNS is aggressively working to
Fight SNAP Fraud and prevent
any abuse of the program.
