UCOWF Initiatives to Strengthen Program Integrity

UCOWF is committed to strengthening integrity in various public assistance programs that are fundamental to our social safety net.  These taxpayer-funded programs need everyone's effort to preserve the precious dollars appropriated by the government to operate programs such as Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, commonly known as Food Stamps), Subsidized Childcare, Low-income and Subsidized Housing, and Temporary Cash Assistance, to name a few.


Our efforts go beyond the work our members do in their states and counties.  As an organization, UCOWF contributes to strengthening public assistance program integrity by maintaining close ties with our federal program partners and providing them our advice or position on pertinent issues and proposed changes to the way these programs are operated.

Read on to learn about our most recent initiatives to strengthen integrity through coordination with our federal partners.

The Public Role of UCOWF

UCOWF MembersThe United Council on Welfare Fraud is an organization whose primary goal is to strengthen the integrity of our public assistance programs.  We do that by providing our members with a variety of training and collaboration tools to improve their ability to identify, investigate, prosecute, and recoup fraud committed against the public assistance programs in North America.

We also have a public role.  Part of UCOWF's goal in strengthening the integrity of these social programs is by providing a site where the public can learn about our members' efforts to reduce fraud and about ways the public can assist in these efforts.

What We Don't Do

UCOWF is a non-profit organization, not an extension of any government entity; we are not empowered by any authority to investigate fraud.  Our members are empowered to take action against suspected fraud by authorities within the boundaries of their own jurisdiction and purview but UCOWF is not an investigative agency nor does membership in UCOWF authorize anyone to conduct investigations into public assistance fraud.
