Alaska Food Stamp Benefits

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or the Food Stamps Program as it is known by the public, is a federal program that provides government grants to the States for the purpose of reducing the hunger and malnutrition in all eligible households across the nation.

It is important to know that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is a federal entitlement program funded by U.S. Government grants.

Any U.S. Citizen, even some legal alien residents, will get free food assistance as long as they meet the SNAP eligibility guidelines.

In other words, there is enough Supplemental Nutrition Assistance for every American that qualifies.

In Alaska, the SNAP is administered by the Division of Public Assistance and is known as Alaska Food Stamp Benefits.

The Food Assistance Division is part of Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.

The federal grants pay 100% of Alaska Food Stamp Benefits while the administrative cost of operating the Alaska Food Stamp program is shared between the US Federal Government and the State of Alaska.

Alaska Food Stamp Benefits provides monthly food assistance benefits to eligible low-income households.

The Alaska Food Stamps help low income buy the food they need for good nutrition and health.
