A multi-State project funded by ERS looked at the interaction between the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and unemployment insurance during and following the 2007-09 recession. Participation overlap for the two programs varied for States with different labor market conditions. There is evidence that reduction in access or benefit levels in one program can increase use in the other.
