HIP provides a dollar-for-dollar match to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) clients for each SNAP dollar spent on fruit and vegetable purchases at participating Massachusetts farmers markets, farm stands, mobile markets, and community supported agriculture programs.
Each dollar contributed by donors is placed in an expendable trust for this purpose, then directly applied to SNAP clients’ HIP incentive.
Thank you to HIP donors
The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), and the Department of Public Health (DPH) would like to thank our generous donors for supporting HIP and looks forward to continuing to build program support.
Thank you to the following donors who have contributed:
The DTA Assistance Line is open from 8:15 A.M. to 4:45 P.M.
