Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer for Children (SEBTC) Demonstration: Summary Report
The demonstration showed that the program can be implemented, using either the SNAP or WIC model, at a large scale, in a range of communities, and with a variety of implementation approaches. Nearly all households that received benefits used them, and that the households that used benefits at least once used the vast majority of the benefits issued to them. Of highest policy relevance, the impact evaluation shows that receiving benefits improves children’s food security and nutrition.
