Who Can Apply?
On July 1, 2021 Virginia income limits increase by more than 50%. Assets, such as savings, won’t count. An individual or a family may be eligible for this nutrition program even if they own a home, live on the streets and don’t have a mailing address, or work full time. If you qualify, you will receive SNAP. The amount you receive on your EBT card each month depends on your income and your family size.
What is SNAP?
Formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, SNAP is the cornerstone of the Nation’s nutrition safety net and an investment in our future. The SNAP program offers the opportunity for improved nutrition and progress toward economic self-sufficiency for participants. We urge individuals and families to take advantage of this program. It has been created to offer supplemental support for those who are struggling; the working poor, the unemployed, single parents, and the disabled. With even small amounts of SNAP aid, individuals then require less help from the Foodbank, so we can then serve more people. Every dollar spent on food from SNAP creates $1.84 of economic activity, employing people in agriculture, manufacturing, and retail.
