Households in rural counties (14.4%) participate in SNAP more often than those located in small town counties (13.8%) and metropolitan counties (11.3%), according to FRAC analysis.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation’s first line of defense against hunger and a key weapon for assisting low-income Americans and low-income communities.

SNAP is even more important now during unprecedented need during COVID-19.
