Mistakes in NC food stamp approvals jump in 2014

While North Carolina state workers rushed to reduce a crushing backlog of food stamp applications this year, they handed out about $440,000 in excess benefits to hundreds of households. The cost of the mistakes was substantially higher in 2014 than in 2012 and 2013, years that saw an average of $107,000 in excess benefits.
