A three-stage sampling procedure was used to collect data from 436 smallholder maize farming household using a structured questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, food security index and propensity score matching techniques were used to analyze the collected data. Result of descriptive statistics shown that average age of participating household is 48.30 years while for non-participating is 50.52 years old. The average household size of participating households are 9.22 persons while that of non-participating households are 9 persons. And also indicate that majority (89.75%) of participating household head and 94.85% for non-participating household were male with only 10.25% and 3.16% respectively are female. HFIAS result indicate that participating household in CASP programme is more food secured (1.8) then non-participating households. Propensity Score matching result shows that participation in CASP increased Net farm income and food security positively. It can therefore be recommended that participation into the programme can be used as an instrument to reduce food insecurity and increase income among rural farming households.
