The SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) Program helps low-income people and families buy the food they need for good health. Working families, persons on fixed incomes, and those of any means need to meet the income test for household size. Benefits are provided on an electronic card that is used like an ATM card and accepted at most grocery stores. More information can be found at the OTDA website: www.otda.ny.gov/programs/snap and www.mybenefits.ny.gov.

The SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) was formerly known as Food Stamps.
