Barriers that Constrain the Adequacy of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Allotments

This report examines the individual, household, and environmental barriers that SNAP participants encounter as they aim to maintain a healthy diet throughout a month. Drawing on a national survey of SNAP participants, the report also covers the interaction between barriers, the coping mechanisms that SNAP participants used to remediate the barriers, and the association of these barriers with household food insecurity.
