SNAP Education (SNAP-Ed) is the nutrition education and obesity prevention component of SNAP; its goal is to improve the likelihood that persons eligible for SNAP will make nutritious food choices within a limited budget and choose physically active lifestyles consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the USDA food guidance.

This study had five objectives for each state: (1) assess adherence of planned programming to what was delivered, (2) assess the variation in planned costs versus actual expenditures, (3) identify programs commonly used by states, (4) determine how states are using interventions from the SNAP-Ed toolkit and using the Evaluation Framework guidance, and (5) assess if SNAP-Ed reporting collects needed information to determine performance.
