SNAP Information for Government

This page is for governments and government officials—at the federal, state, county and municipal level. It contains information on operating SNAP, and on benefit policy. People outside governments may find the information useful, but it is more detailed, and assumes a more extensive knowledge of the program than, say, the information on the Applicants and Recipients page. If you’re just starting to learn about the program, you may want to use the Applicants and Recipients page as an introduction.
