SNAP

 

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – formerly known as food stamps – is a federal nutrition program from the USDA. SNAP enables eligible, low-income individuals and families to purchase nutritious food using an electronic debit card (EBT) at most grocery and convenience stores that accept EBT benefits.

If you or someone you know is in need of food assistance, SNAP can help.
SNAP empowers eligible, low-income individuals and families to purchase food at grocery stores with the use of an EBT card. Three Square SNAP advocates can assist you free of charge with completing and submitting your SNAP application.

You may be eligible for SNAP benefits if you are:

If I’m eligible for SNAP, am I eligible for other assistance programs?
SNAP recipients, who are expectant mothers or have children under the age of 5 years, are eligible for Women, Infant and Children (WIC) benefits, which are also redeemed for groceries at authorized retailers like grocery stores.

When households with school-age children apply for SNAP, and are determined eligible, they are direct certified for NSLBP (National School Lunch and Breakfast Program).

Some SNAP recipients are also eligible for cash assistance through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program through the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services.
