SNAP Application and Local Office Locators


To apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), you must fill out an application and return it to a local SNAP office. Each State has a different application.

You can use the “Step 1”  SNAP pre-screening tool to find out if you may be eligible for SNAP benefits and how much you could receive. However, the pre-screening tool is not an application for SNAP benefits. An application for SNAP must be made through your local office.
