What Do You Know About SNAP?

SNAP is here for you when you need help buying food.

SNAP is easy to use. SNAP benefits are loaded monthly onto a card that works like a debit card.

You get to choose where to shop and what to buy. Plus, when you shop at participating farmers markets and other Double Up Food Bucks locations, you can double your SNAP dollars.

SNAP is available for all Arizonans who qualify. Plus, you have already paid into the program with your tax dollars.

Many Arizonans that work use SNAP to help afford healthy food.

Application renewal: Nutrition Assistance requires a renewal to determine if there have been any changes to their current eligibility status. Renewal dates can range from three months to two years from the initial application date. Clients will be mailed a letter informing them that it is time to renew benefits. It is important for clients to report a change in mailing address to ensure they receive notification regarding their renewal.
