Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) is the nation’s most important anti-hunger program.  In 2013, it helped more than 47 million low-income Americans to afford a nutritionally adequate diet. SNAP allows families or individuals to buy food at the grocery store, corner stores and even some farmers' markets.

Who can apply?

Anyone can apply for SNAP, but only a Connecticut Department of Social Services Eligibility Worker can determine SNAP eligibility.

Who is eligible?

Many Connecticut residents are eligible to receive SNAP benefits and don’t even know it! SNAP eligibility is determined by income, expenses, household size and other factors.

We can help!

A SNAP Outreach Worker at Fair Haven Community Health Center can help you find out if you qualify and then help you submit an application to the Connecticut Department of Social Services.
