The federal government has levied a $1.2 million penalty against Indiana’s human services agency for miscalculating food stamp benefits at a rate more than one-and-a-half times the national average last year, state officials learned Thursday.

Indiana is one of four states facing financial penalties for poor food stamp performance during the federal fiscal year that ended last Sept. 30, according to letters sent to Gov. Mitch Daniels and others.
