  • Food Assistance Program (SNAP) Eligibility Requirements

    Households applying for or receiving food assistance benefits must meet all applicable eligibility requirements based on food assistance policies. Time limits and requirements of other programs do not affect a household's eligibility for food assistance benefits. A household may still qualify for food assistance benefits even if eligibility ends in another program. Households must cooperate with the agency in establishing eligibility for food assistance. Failure to meet these requirements can result in a denial or termination of the food assistance case. Also in Spanish/Español (You must have a PDF reader on your computer to open this document.
