SNAP Outreach Program
In tough economic times, now more than ever, families in Virginia are feeling the money crunch. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program, is a government program that provides low-income families with funds on an Electronic Debit Transfer (EBT) card. These funds can be used to purchase healthy foods at participating grocery stores, department stores, as well as an increased number of farmers' markets.
Find out if you are eligible for SNAP benefits by visiting one of our outreach locations or by making an appointment with our SNAP Outreach Coordinator. You may qualify for SNAP, even if you:
Own a home
Are working full or part-time
Have a car
Are living with others
Effective July 1, 2020, individuals with felony convictions related to drugs will no longer be ineligible for SNAP due to their conviction.
Eligibility is based on household size, monthly gross income level, and income expenses. If your income level is lower than the levels below, then you are probably eligible and we highly encourage you to apply for benefits.
