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.

 

ON-SITE SCREENING

 

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

 

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.
