The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the new name for the federal Food Stamp Program. SNAP is the national name, individual states may use a different name, such as Indiana and their Federal Nutrition Supplement program. The new name, SNAP, reflects a heightened focus on nutrition and putting healthy food within reach for low income households. Changes have been made to make the Program more accessible.
SNAP helps low-income people and families buy the food they need for good health. You apply for benefits by completing a State application form. Benefits are provided on an electronic card that is used like an ATM card and accepted at most grocery stores.
Through nutrition education partners, SNAP helps clients learn to make healthy eating and active lifestyle choices.
