The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a Federal program that provides nutrition benefits to low-income individuals and families that are used at stores to purchase food. The program is administered by State and local agencies. This website provides general information about the program.

We do not have access to case files and cannot process individual applications.
