Description

Program Description

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a county-run, state-supervised Federal program that helps Minnesotans with low incomes get the food they need for sound nutrition and well-balanced meals. The program issues electronic food support benefits that can help stretch your household food budget.

Program Requirements

SNAP eligibility depends on your household’s income. Households with an income at or below 165 percent of the Federal poverty level will not have an asset limit. County human services agencies accept client applications, determine eligibility and determine benefit levels in accordance with state and Federal regulations. SNAP is available in all 87 Minnesota counties.

Application Process

To apply for SNAP, contact your county human services agency.

You may also call the hotline at 651-431-4050 in the Twin Cities metro area or 1-800-657-3698 outside the metro area to find out what county you live in and where to apply for SNAP. For Teletypewriter (TTY) service, call the Minnesota Relay at 711 or 1-800-627-3529.

Next, complete a Combined Application Form (CAF) and have an interview. The CAF is the application counties require you to complete to apply for food and cash assistance. When your benefits begin depends on the date the county receives the first page of the CAF. You can get a CAF from your local county office or from the Minnesota Department of Human Services website. If you are not able to go to your county office for an interview due to hardship, you may request a phone interview.

You may also apply through Minnesota’s electronic application for public assistance programs.
