Is a federally funded program whose purpose is to reduce hunger and malnutrition among the members of low-income households. Whether or not you are eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance benefits is based on your household size, income, assets, and several other factors. All of these factors are also used to figure out how much in benefits you will receive. Please understand you may not be eligible for benefits at all depending on those factors listed above, if you do qualify you will be notified 30 days from the application date.
The goal of the program is to provide a higher level of nutrition to income eligible individuals and families by helping them buy healthy food. For more about the SNAP program including stores and farmer's markets where you can use your benefits click on the following link: SNAP Retailers
