TX Food Stamp Backlog

The Texas Food Stamp program is digging its way out of trouble after becoming swamped by hurricanes and cuts to the work force.

The most recent figures show Texas processed 69% of applications within the required 30 days.

Which is 15% below the national average.

Hiring more workers and letting food banks interview applicants reportedly helped Texas cut its total of tardy, unprocessed applications to about 6,000 from a high of more than 42,000 in October.
