SNAP benefits provide you help at the grocery store

Did you know that on average a Kentucky SNAP participant receives about $122 in food assistance each month?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federally funded food assistance program that provides vital nutritional support to people all across the United States.

Many people do not apply for SNAP benefits because they think they are not eligible, or because they assume they will only be approved for the minimum benefit of $16 per month. However, most Kentuckians are approved for much more than the minimum benefit amount. Even if you have been denied these benefits before, or if you lost your support for one reason or another, you should contact your local SHIP program to see if you or your loved ones qualify for this valuable program.
