Strengthening SNAP: Grant Opportunity for States and Partners

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation's largest domestic food and nutrition assistance program for low-income Americans. USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is committed to enhancing the program and aiding participants. As part of these efforts, FNS is pleased to announce the release of the 2024 SNAP Process and Technology Improvement Grants Program (PTIG) request for applications, aimed at supporting efforts by state agencies and their community-based and faith-based partners to develop and implement projects that use technology to improve the quality and efficiency of SNAP application and eligibility determination systems. These grants are particularly timely as many states are struggling to meet critical customer service standards of timely and accurate benefits.

SNAP Process and Technology Improvement Grants Program

PTIGs offer up to $5 million in grants to support projects focused on modernizing SNAP customer service and client communication, improving administrative infrastructure and day-to-day operations, or investing in technology to encourage cross-collaboration and cross-enrollment between SNAP and other assistance programs. SNAP anticipates awarding between $20,000 and $2,000,000 each to up to 12 awardees in August 2024.

Last year's grant awards showcased innovative projects and impactful initiatives. View a summary of last year's grant awards.

Application Details

The application period for the SNAP PTIG opened on April 19, 2024, and closes on June 18, 2024.

Eligible applicants include SNAP state agencies, state or local governments, health or welfare service agencies, public health or educational entities, indian tribal organizations (ITOs), private non-profit organizations (such as community-based or faith-based organizations, food banks, or other emergency feeding organizations).

We encourage all eligible entities to explore this opportunity and submit applications to help strengthen SNAP operations and ensure eligible individuals and families receive the vital food assistance they need.
