Before you apply, what do you need to have in order to eligible to receive food stamp benefits? So what does it take, you need the following qualifications:


  • The gross income that the entirety of your household brings in needs to be equal to or less than 185% of the poverty level when looking at federal numbers.
  • If you have someone within the household that is over 60 years old or has a disability, your income can be higher than the above but your assets, bank accounts and other resources are taken into account when determining eligibility.
  • If you have kids within the household and get the Vermont Income Tax Credit- you are likely to be eligible to receive food stamp benefits.


What Do I Do to Apply for Benefits


Applying is extremely simply, if you are falling behind and having problems bringing healthy meals to your family, do not hesitate to fill out the paperwork. As a US citizen, you deserve and have earn the right to be comfortable and to have healthy meals. If you have paid taxes over the years, then that money is what is helping to supply those that are struggling with a chance to feed their families.
