What is SNAP?

SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as “food stamps.”

The monthly benefit is application-based and helps anyone who is income eligible including working families, single individuals, seniors, people with disabilities, and people who are unemployed. SNAP benefits are typically issued once a monthly through a debit/EBT card that can be used at participating authorized retailers and farmers’ markets.

Am I Eligible for SNAP Benefits?

  • SNAP is for anyone who meets the eligibility requirements including single individuals, families, seniors, the disabled, and people experiencing homelessness.

  • A SNAP household includes people who buy and prepare meals together. There can be more than one “household” under one roof.

  • Owning a home or a car or having savings in the bank does not necessarily disqualify you from eligibility.

  • Immigrants of qualified status (legal permanent residents for 5 years) and children of undocumented immigrants can still apply.

  • Many working households need help with food. You can be employed, unemployed, or receiving unemployment benefits and you may still qualify.

  • SNAP is designed to provide benefits for everyone who qualifies. Often eligible SNAP households are not informed about the program and have not yet applied to receive the benefits.
