Abstract

The Center co-sponsored this conference with the Community Affairs Department and the Electronic Funds Transfer Association’s EBT Industry Council. The purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for community, banking, and payment industry leaders on the future of EBT. The sessions provided an understanding of what EBT is, an assessment of its impact on communities, an examination of its legacy as a payment system, and a look ahead to its continuing role in American communities
