Researchers offer several recommendations based on feedback from state agencies tasked with administering the P-EBT program that include providing more timely and clear federal guidance to program administrators and establishing more feasible options for state implementation. Additional recommendations include examining existing state infrastructure and discussing how the P-EBT program can be integrated to shorten the time between benefit authorization and receipt.
