Program Description

Did you know that for every five people that are eligible for SNAP in Wyoming, only three are receiving benefits? The Wyoming SNAP is taking the necessary steps to reach all people that meet the 130 percent poverty level, by reaching out to all potential individuals and families. SNAP, under the Department of Family Services (DFS), provides crucial support to needy households and to those making the transition from welfare to work. Our mission is to raise the levels of nutrition among low-income households, and provide them more nutritious foods for a better diet. SNAP follows regulations and rules established by the Federal government and the Food Stamp (SNAP) Act of 1977 as the basis for the present day program.

Program Requirements

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Wyoming and fall into one of two groups: (1) those with a current bank balance (savings and checking combined) under $2,001, or (2) those with a current bank balance (savings and checking combined) under $3,001 who share their household with a person or persons age 60 and over, or with a person with a disability (a child, your spouse, a parent, or yourself). The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) limits the receipt of SNAP benefits to three months in a three-year period for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) who are not working, participating in, and complying with the requirements of a work program for 20 hours or more each week, or a workfare program. Individuals are exempt from this provision if they are: under 18 or 50 years of age or older; responsible for the care of a child or incapacitated household member; medically certified as physically or mentally unfit for employment; pregnant; or already exempt from the work requirements of the Food Stamp Act.

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 $19,602
2 $26,433
3 $33,264
4 $40,095
5 $46,926
6 $53,757
7 $60,604
8 $67,468

*For households with more than eight people, add $6,864 per additional person. Always check with the appropriate managing agency to ensure the most accurate guidelines.
