    Michigan can look on the brighter side for once when it comes to ensuring that people who qualify for food assistance are actually receiving that assistance. A report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has ranked Michigan as the third best state in ensuring that the 1.65 million people who are enrolled in the states Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), are able to collect on those benefits.

    .

    The USDA Food and Nutrition Service reported that 89 percent of people in Michigan who qualified for food assistance actually received it. Michigan ranking almost 25 percent higher than the national average which was 66 percent at the time. The average for our neighboring Midwest states was 77 percent.

    Detroit came in at a close second and only one percent behind Philedelphia for large cities in the United States that were studied in the report. Detroit reached 92 percent of people needing food assistance and Philadelphia reached 93 percent.

    Another report released by the Michigan League of Human Services recently showed that not only are the people who need food assistance getting that assistance but they are also receiving more assistance. The Federal stimulus fund which was enacted by President Obama this year has provided direct benefits to recipients of the states program. There is an additional 20 to 24 dollars a month going to each person receiving the benefits.
