Colorado Food Assistance Program = Food Stamps = SNAP 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 grants to the States for the purpose of reducing the hunger and malnutrition in all eligible households across the nation.
SNAP helps provide healthy food to qualifying low-income families with children, elderly or disabled in each State of the USA, including Colorado.
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. Learn more about SNAP.
In Colorado the SNAP is administered by Colorado Department of Human Services. The Federal Government oversees the State operation of the SNAP.
According to Colorado Department of Human Services, the focus of the agency is on good nutrition and health, and the Colorado Food Assistance Program provides monthly benefits to low-income households to buy the food needed for a nutritionally adequate diet.
