Measuring the Cost of a Thrifty Food Plan in Puerto Rico

Resource type
Report

In response to a Congressional Directive, USDA commissioned the Measuring the Cost of a Thrifty Food Plan in Puerto Rico study (below). The purpose of the study was to provide USDA with options for measuring the cost of a Thrifty Food Plan in Puerto Rico, where food benefits are currently provided through the Nutrition Assistance Program.

To identify options, a study team conducted an environmental scan, convened an expert study group, conducted interviews with subject matter experts, and synthesized information across sources. The final options are described in the report, along with each option's advantages and disadvantages, as well as cost and timeline to implement.
