SNAP Benefits - formerly known as food stamps
Do you need help buying fresh, nutritious food?
You may be eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps. The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) administers SNAP benefits. SNAP provides a monthly benefit to buy nutritious foods. To receive SNAP, you must be low income and be a U.S. citizen or legal noncitizen (restrictions apply). Eligibility for SNAP benefits depends on financial and nonfinancial criteria. To contact DTA about SNAP, call the DTA Assistance Line at (877) 382-2363.
