The SNAP Program, formerly known as Food Stamps, helps individuals and families buy food. If you are struggling financially to buy food and provide nutritious meals, you may be eligible for SNAP. You do not need to be participating in other DHS programs to receive SNAP benefits. You can be unemployed or working, preparing for work, receiving a pension, or homeless.
