Participation in SNAP varies across States, reflecting differences in need and program policies
In fiscal 2014, SNAP served an average of 46.5 million people per month, or about 15 percent of Americans. Southeastern States have a particularly high share of residents receiving SNAP benefits, with participation rates of 16 to 22 percent. In 2014, Wyoming, Utah, and North Dakota were the only States with less than 8 percent of the population receiving SNAP benefits.
