SNAP Program Helps Qualifying Families Meet Nutritional Needs
Families may qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to help meet their nutritional needs. Eligible families are issued an electronic debit card, which can be used for food at participating stores.
To qualify for SNAP, your household income must not exceed 130% of the Federal Poverty Level. You can find out if you may qualify by using the eligibility calculator.

The amount of assistance will vary based on family size and other factors, and your caseworker may ask for additional verifications. Able-bodied adults may be asked to complete a work requirement in exchange for their assistance.
