Florida is getting a $7 million bonus from the federal government over how the state is running its food stamp program.
DCF said that Florida's error rate of 0.81 percent was the second lowest in the nation. Last year, Florida had the lowest error rate.
State agencies across the country are required each year to review a statistical sample of households and double-check if the family is eligible for assistance and whether the benefits levels are appropriate.
In March, there were approximately 3.45 million people receiving food stamps in Florida. Food stamps are delivered through electronic debit cards.
