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 table.

      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 are made.

      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 purposes only.

      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.
