Program Integrity Goals

  • Improve Integrity In The Nutrition Assistance Programs
  • Maintain Public Confidence And Exercise Good Stewardship Of Federal Funds By Reducing Improper Payments

Promoting access to nutrition assistance programs – programs that have never been more urgently needed than they are today – goes hand-in-hand with managing them in a manner that ensures public confidence and maximizes the impact of the Federal investment.  Americans expect and deserve a government that ensures wise management of the public investment in nutrition assistance is managed wisely.  Without that, we risk undermining public confidence in their value.  Furthermore, strong management ensures that those most in need of nutrition assistance receive it, and that scarce resources are not wasted by error or abuse.

FNS uses all available opportunities, including new communication and eGovernment technologies, to promote secure and efficient program delivery hand-in-hand with strong customer service.
