NC Food Stamp Program Suffers Significant Deficiencies, Lack of Oversite

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued a blistering report detailing “38 deficiencies in state and local management of the food stamp program, many of which “are significant and show lack of oversight and internal controls.”’

The state Department of Health and Human Services formally replied to a critical review of its food stamp program, telling the federal government that it was correcting faulty processes, or telling the counties to do it.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees food stamps, issued a report in September describing 38 deficiencies in state and local management of the food stamp program, many of which “are significant and show lack of oversight and internal controls.”

But then, that’s just North Carolina. Multiply the problem by 50, or so, or perhaps 51 including Washington, D.C. and one may begin to imagine the scope of the real problems.
