Rural and small town households across the country are more likely to participate in SNAP than their metro-area counterparts, according to the Food Research and Action Center’s SNAP Map, the interactive data tool FRAC launched on August 2. The map provides county-by-county and state-by-state SNAP participation by type of area--rural, small town, and metro. The tool offers interactive state and county maps to pinpoint SNAP participation; an interactive, searchable table to compare SNAP participation by state and county; and state factsheets on the share of SNAP households in each state with children, families with working members, and those participating in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program.
