Within the context of the Food Stamp Program the authors discuss the inevitable tradeoffs that must be made in designing an income maintenance program: work incentives versus adequacy, accessibility versus targeting, administrative cost savings versus fraud and error reduction. This book will be useful to practitioners involved in developing policy, to students who wish to learn more about the issues that shape the design of the program and the way it is administered, and to persons interested in recent research on the Food Stamp Program. The Food Stamp Program is the most important-and the only universal-component of our safety net. It has been studied far more than other components of the system. This combination makes it a very good model to illustrate the program design tradeoffs that must be made in any social program, and the impacts of those choices. It has been more than a decade since a comprehensive volume on food stamp policy has been published. Ohls and Beebout, both senior analysts at Mathematica Policy Research, are among the foremost national experts on the subject.
