If you are interested in SNAP and want to apply, you must visit your local SNAP office, visit your state agency’s website, or call your state’s toll-free SNAP hotline.

After you apply for SNAP benefits, you will have 30 days, to complete an eligibility interview and give proof (verification) of the information you provided. The interview is typically completed over the telephone or in-person. The information you need should be provided by your local SNAP office.

In addition, your local SNAP office will process your application and send you a notice telling you whether or not you are eligible for benefits during this 30 days too.

Again, if you are confused about this process, please consult your local SNAP office for them to explain the process to you.
