"Extending ARRA's (American Recovery & Reinvestment Act) ABAWD's (Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents) provision would improve ABAWD's access to nutritious food because they will not be subject to time restraints. the extension would also improve the administration of the program by reducing waiver workload."
