Child Support Cooperation

Although child support is a critical tool to reducing poverty, only 27% of single-parent families on food stamps actually receive it. States can disqualify parents from food stamp assistance who fail to cooperate with child support enforcement agencies or owe unpaid court-ordered child support.

Why does Child Support Cooperation matter?

Child support helps nearly one million people exit poverty. If all states enforced child support cooperation for food stamp enrollees, single-parent families on food stamps would receive up to $325 million more per year in child support.
