FY 2010 Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer for Children (SEBTC) SNAP MODEL
The 2010 Agriculture Appropriations Act (PL 111-80) provided authority and funding for USDA to demonstrate and rigorously evaluate methods of reducing or preventing food insecurity and hunger among children in the summer months. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) will conduct a range of demonstration projects that test enhancements to the existing SFSP, as well as ones that test household food benefits to reach food insecure school children and prevent hunger in the summer.
The Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer for Children (SEBTC) demonstration will test a household-based method of delivering nutrition assistance to low-income children during the summer. This solicitation is one part of this multi-part project.
