by Joanne Guthrie

Administrative Publication No. (AP-063) 35 pp, May 2014

ERS in partnership with USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service is inviting proposals to establish the USDA Center for Behavioral Economics and Healthy Food Choice Research. The USDA Center will apply behavioral economics to food choice behaviors, including consumer, food industry, and retailer behaviors, that are relevant to USDA policies, with special attention to the SNAP and WIC programs.

Errata: On June 4, 2014, Table 1, “Specific Instructions for Application for Federal Domestic Assistance-Short Organizational (SF-424),” Item 6b-c was changed from “leave blank” to “enter the requested information.”

Keywords: Food assistance programs, behavioral economics, nutrition, food choices, economic incentives, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP, Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, WIC
