SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, is a federal assistance program that provides eligible low-income individuals and families with funds to purchase food. It works through Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards, which are used like debit cards at authorized retailers to buy eligible food items.
Eligibility for SNAP is primarily based on factors like household income, expenses, and family size. Generally, low-income individuals and families who meet these criteria may be eligible.
You can use the “Pre-Screening Eligibility Tool” on the official SNAP website or contact your local SNAP office to determine your eligibility. They will help you assess your qualifications.
