(Formerly Food Stamps)
The purpose of SNAP benefits is to supplement a household's food purchasing income. If a household meets SNAP's eligibility rules, the amount of SNAP benefits that a household may receive depends upon the number of people in the home and how much money is left after certain expenses are subtracted.
For more information on SNAP, contact your local Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) office. Applications for assistance may be made in all 120 counties.
