Who is eligible for SNAP?
SNAP, commonly referred to as food stamps, helps low-income people buy nutritious food.
To get SNAP advantage, your household must earn below a certain income level. Your household includes everyone who lives with you, buys and cooks together.
Resources, such as cash or money in a bank account, also affect eligibility.
Currently, households can have $ 2,250 in resources or $ 3,500 if at least one person is 60 years or older or disabled.
If you are between 18 and 49 years old and able to work, but are currently unemployed without maintenance, you may only be entitled to SNAP benefits for three months within a three-year period.
