Enrollment Trends of Estimated Numbers of Potentially SNAP-Eligible Students

1. SNAP: The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, helps low-income individuals and families buy food and meet their nutritional needs.
2. SNAP Participation: Each student's SNAP participation is measured by the overlap between their SNAP membership and the fall semester in each year, using start and end dates. All start and end dates are estimates. The overlap should not be viewed as a precise measure.
3. Potential SNAP Eligibility: Students reporting a family income less than or equal to 130% of the federal poverty level are identified as potentially eligible for SNAP benefits.
