Discover SNAP and Its Benefits
What is SNAP?
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budgets of families in need so that they can purchase healthy food and move toward self-sufficiency. SNAP is a federally funded program that helps low-income households in Colorado purchase food. It provides monthly benefits that help families and individuals buy the food they need for good health. The benefit is provided based on several factors, including income, household expenses, and the number of individuals in the household. Participants receive Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards that can be used similarly to debit cards at participating food stores.
