Food Stamp Eligibility Requirements


In order to receive SNAP benefits, you must meet certain requirements. Your eligibility depends on a few factors:

  • how many adults live in your house
  • how many children are in your care
  • your income (including income from a job, unemployment, disability or Social Security)
  • how much cash you have on-hand (savings in banks, for example)

If you're having difficulty making ends meet but you're unsure whether you qualify for SNAP, contact your local office and ask them about your specific situation. Many people who apply successfully qualify and begin getting benefits right away.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SNAP: Even if you're approved, sometimes SNAP is not enough to feed the whole family. We recommend combining your food stamps with manufacturer coupons and store sales to make the most out of every SNAP dollar.


Learn more about how coupons can be used with food stamps.


What If the Government Denies Your Food Stamp Application?


If you're denied food stamp assistance, don't panic. Many communities have food banks and donation programs that can help you bridge the gap during this difficult time.


Contact your local government office or churches to find out where the closest food bank is to you.


If you're pregnant and/or have a child under 5 years old, you may qualify for the the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program, WIC, which stands for Women, Infants and Children.


WIC benefits include food assistance and healthcare services. Contact your local WIC office to learn more about these benefits.
