Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
As of Oct. 1,
2008, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
(SNAP) is the new name for the federal Food Stamp Program.
The new name reflects the changes we’ve made to meet the needs of
our clients, including a focus on nutrition and an increase in
benefit amounts. SNAP is the federal name for the program. State
programs may have different names.
