Many states already implement ABAWD requirements, including Alabama. The problem is not with ABAWD implementation since these are households without children and the person applying doesn’t need to meet this requirement if they are disabled. The problem lies in the unequal access to work incentive programs and resources in rural counties. There is absolutely no training/career centers in rural counties. Also, incentivizing fresh fruits and vegetables based on retailers sounds a little shady. Sounds like that retailer has a contract to get more government money. Not to mention the cost of fresh fruits and vegetables for large families is not cost friendly and many will not be able to afford it. These changes do absolutely NOTHING to help the very group that needs it and seems to be a shady corporate incentive. And for the record, I’m a SNAP caseworker and understand the policies and how the system works.
