The Mississippi Department of Human Services and Mississippi State University have been granted more than $1.9 million to help combat waste, fraud and abuse in the federal food benefit program

Senator Thad Cochran said the two entities will team up to develop and install an early detection and fraud management system to analyze patterns of fraud within the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Cochran says the grant is designed to help states deploy new technology to monitor and track investigations of individuals suspected of intentional program violations. In addition to Mississippi, the Department of Agriculture awarded similar grants to Alaska, Maine, Nevada, and New Jersey.
