Breitbart News analyzed the USDA's data on food stamp spending and found that $4,007,026,532 of the $63,603,595,754 the agency spent on SNAP in FY 2017 went to improper payments.

The USDA told Breitbart News that "it is important to note that improper payments include both overpayments and underpayments," meaning that households on SNAP that received less than what they were supposed to receive for the month are also included in the percentage rate.
