You may be eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps. The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) administers SNAP benefits. SNAP provides a monthly benefit to buy nutritious foods. To receive SNAP, you must be low income and be a US citizen or legal noncitizen (restrictions apply). Eligibility for SNAP benefits depends on financial and nonfinancial criteria. To contact DTA about SNAP, call the DTA Assistance Line at (877) 382-2363.
