Relaxing The FSP Vehicle Asset Test: Findings From The North Carolina Demonstration

This report analyzes the findings from North Carolina’s Vehicle Exclusion Limit Demonstration (VELD), which excluded one vehicle per household, regardless of value, from the Food Stamp Program’s countable asset limit.
