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.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP is the new name for the Food Stamp Program. By going to this website, you can get current food stamp income limits. Note that it has different limits for disabled and elderly people. The website also shows the largest amounts families can get in food stamps. To get these amounts of food stamps, families have to have no income or very little income. Please note: This website talks about counting cars toward the resource limit. In Alabama, cars do not count.
