Connecticut SNAP Benefits = Connecticut Food Stamps

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 hunger and malnutrition in all eligible households across the nation.

The SNAP helps provide healthy food to qualifying low-income families with children, elderly or disabled in each State of the USA, including Connecticut. SNAP also provides education about nutrition to help recipients choose foods that enhance their health and well-being.

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 Connecticut, the SNAP is administered by the Department of Social Services (DSS). The Federal Government oversees the State operation of the SNAP.

The main purpose of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is to help end hunger and improve the nutrition and health of low-income households.

The Food Assistance Program provides monthly benefits to low-income Connecticut households that help them buy the food needed for a nutritionally adequate diet.
