What Is a SNAP Application? 

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Application is a request to participate in a federal program that allows low-income Americans to purchase food.

Alternate Names:

  • SNAP Application Form;
  • Food Stamp Application Form.

SNAP provides benefits via the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that is used to buy eligible food – bread, cereals, vegetables, fruits, meat, and dairy products - in authorized grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmers’ markets. It helps people to get back on their feet and pave a road to financial security. Along with unemployment insurance, SNAP is the most commonly used federal program that provides economic assistance during economic downturns.

SNAP Application Forms by State

Each state is responsible for implementing SNAP, approving SNAP applications, issuing EBT cards, and transferring monthly benefits to SNAP participants. States administer SNAP differently – it is allowed to adapt policy in order to meet the needs of low-income individuals in particular states.

It is even possible to rename the SNAP – five states still call this program the Food Stamp Program, while sixteen states have adopted unique names – for instance, CalFresh in California and 3SquaresVT in Vermont. Before you contact your local SNAP office, see the SNAP Application Form for your state below to learn the eligibility requirements and find out whether you qualify for these benefits.

What Is the Main Purpose of SNAP?

SNAP was designed to assist the most at-risk citizens – households with children, disabled individuals living on fixed incomes, and low-income elderly members. Almost half of all SNAP participants are children. SNAP is not available to all unauthorized immigrants and individuals who are on strike because of a labor dispute. In conjunction with community groups, volunteer organizations, and food banks, the SNAP strengthens communities by providing the nutrition and support people need.

What Are the Requirements for SNAP Benefits?

To be eligible for benefits, each household must meet three requirements:

  • Gross monthly income is at or below 130% of the poverty line. SNAP counts income from all sources – earnings, cash assistance, unemployment insurance, Social Security payments. The poverty level is lower for smaller families and higher for bigger families;
  • Net income – a household income after the deductions were applied – is at or below the poverty line;
  • Assets are below certain limits – for example, a household without an elderly or disabled individual must have assets of no more than $2,250, while a household with such a member can have assets of no more than $3,500.
