The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) mandated higher monthly benefits for households participating in USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Subsequent legislation ended these higher benefits in November 2013. Researchers found that SNAP households spent less time on food shopping and meal preparation and more time in income-generating work following the sunset of the higher ARRA-mandated benefits.
