SNAP - Food Stamps
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, is a Connecticut Department of Social Services program that helps low-income individuals and families afford the cost of food at grocery stores and farmers’ markets.
West Hartford is a Screening Site for SNAP. We periodically host Foodshare Volunteers to screen and help process SNAP applications. Eligibility into the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is determined by income. A family’s gross monthly income must be below 185% of the FPL in order to be found eligible for the program (click here for guidelines). Expenses such as rent/mortgage and utilities are taken into consideration only after eligibility is determined. Expenses will help establish the monthly allotment for the benefit.
Call 860-561-7561 for a SNAP appointment in Room 306 at the Town Hall.
