Lead Researchers:  Sandi Pruitt & Tammy Leonard

This project is being led by Crossroads Community Services and will implement a randomized controlled trial of a behavioral-economics informed intervention to improve the scarcity context of budgetting decisions made by low-income households.  Our hypothesis is that by better coordinating use of SNAP and food pantry assistance, households will be better able to smooth food consumption throughout the month and achieve better food security.
