USDA: Illinois Likely Over-Issued Food Stamps
(Springfield, IL) — Federal regulators are warning the state of Illinois about the number of people in the state on food stamps. The USDA sent a letter to the Illinois Department of Human Services earlier this month, explaining a number of irregularities in how the state manages the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The letter says Illinois looks to have over-issued food stamps. The USDA says there were ‘systematic’ concerns about how Illinois verified people enrolled in the program.
