SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)
SNAP is a government assistance program to help low-income households buy food. SNAP food stamps are for U.S. citizens and eligible noncitizens with limited incomes who buy food and make meals at home. There are several ways to apply for SNAP food stamps. You can apply at the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) office or at a SNAP food stamp outreach site in your area. See DTA Office Locations, or call Project Bread's toll-free FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333 (TTY: 1-800-377-1292) for locations. You can also apply online by using the Virtual Gateway Online SNAP Food Stamp Application, or you can download a copy of the SNAP food stamps application, fill it in at home, and send it to the DTA. When you apply, you will need proof of identity, income, and expenses.
