Need Help with Your Application? Ask a SNAP Navigator.

Applying for SNAP can be confusing. A SNAP Navigator can help you apply and help you keep your benefits so you can get the food assistance you need. 

SNAP Navigators will walk you through:

  • How SNAP works;
  • eligibility requirements;
  • what documents you need to apply;
  • the application process, and;
  • how to keep your SNAP benefits.

They also can answer questions and correct misconceptions about SNAP to help you decide if SNAP is right for you. This help is free and confidential.

SNAP Navigators often hold events in your community at food pantries, senior centers, health care facilities, libraries, schools and other locations. 

Be aware that there are other agencies that might claim to be “SNAP consultants,” asking for your personal information to complete a pre-approved SNAP application or telling you that an application was initiated on your behalf. If you think a letter or text is a scam, do not reply at all. If you do not know if a request for personal information is real, contact your county board of social services.

You should never be asked to pay for help filling out an application. There is no charge.
