MD Benefits Center reduces hunger for all ages

Since 2012, Benefits Data Trust (BDT), the AARP Foundation, Share Our Strength, and state government have collaborated in Maryland to combat food insecurity and increase stability across the age spectrum.

Using a comprehensive, data-driven outreach and application assistance strategy developed by BDT, the MD Benefits Center has:

  • Significantly increased the number of individuals enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Infused millions of dollars into low-income households and the Maryland economy

The newly released case study details the impact of this collaboration and takes a glimpse into what’s ahead for the MD Benefits Center.
