Learn about the Food Stamps Program
The United States Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), historically and commonly known as the Food Stamp Program, is a federal-assistance program that provides assistance to low and no income people and families living in the U.S. Though the program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, benefits are distributed by the individual U.S. states.
You can learn more about who is eligible for benefits, basic requirements and how to apply for benefits by visiting the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services website at: http://chfs.ky.gov/dcbs/dfs/foodstampsebt.htm
In addition, here in Louisville, some Neighborhood Place offices can help.
