SNAP (Food Assistance)


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps low-income households in Colorado purchase food. It provides a monthly benefit that helps families and individuals buy the food they need for good health.

The benefit is provided based on income, resources and the number of individuals in the household. Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards are used to receive the benefit and can be used similarly to debit cards at participating food retailers. The benefit can be doubled in value by shopping at participating markets and food stores that support the Double Up Food Bucks program. While the program won’t meet all the nutritional needs of a household, it can help a family or individual buy groceries each month.
