What's the most help I can expect?
The maximum amount of SNAP benefits you can receive each month depends
on how many people are in your household and
your net income after deductions. Refer to the
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Income Test/Allotments
How do you figure out the exact amount my family will receive?
The amount of SNAP benefits varies based on household size and the income available after all allowable deductions
You may also visit the USDA Food & Nutrition web site
for an eligibility
screening test. This site does not belong to the
Division of Welfare and Supportive Services; it is for information
After reviewing this information, contact your local Welfare Office to determine your eligibility. Only that office
can tell you for sure if you qualify for benefits.
Can I fax or mail my application to the Welfare office?
Applications may be mailed or faxed. If the application is faxed, the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services requires the original form be submitted at the interview or by mail.
