Program Description

The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, provides food benefits, access to a healthy diet, and education on food preparation and nutrition to low-income households. Recipients spend their benefits (provided on an electronic card that is used like an ATM card) to buy eligible food in authorized retail food stores.

SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works with State agencies, nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith-based organizations to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and can access benefits. SNAP is the federal name for the program. The Colorado program is known as the Colorado Food Assistance Program. Test

Program Requirements

For this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Colorado.

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size* Maximum Income Level (Per Year)
1 $15,782
2 $21,398
3 $27,014
4 $32,630
5 $38,246
6 $43,862
7 $49,478
8 $55,094

*For households with more than eight people, add $5,616 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.

Households that are receiving public assistance (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or Supplemental Security Income) are categorically eligible for SNAP regardless of income.

To see if you might be eligible for SNAP benefits, use SNAP’s pre-screening tool.

Because many programs offer services to families that may qualify them under other local criteria, we strongly recommend you contact the program in your community for more information and guidance.
