Dead Ends: Assessing Transportation Barriers among the ABAWD Population in Illinois is the culmination of Maria Cristina’s work at the Illinois Hunger Coalition, where she spent her field placement researching the impact of SNAP work requirements on the Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents (ABAWDs) population. She focused her HFCR on transportation barriers and how these negatively impact ABAWDs’ ability to attain and sustain long-term employment, and offered policy recommendations that focused on taking a more nuanced approach to employment and training (E&T) programs for ABAWDs.
