SNAPffectiveness
Yes! The SNAP Program is the nation's front line safety net against hunger. SNAP benefits 14.0 percent of households and is a key to helping households in the midst of economic downturn.

SNAP is a nutrition program. It is not a welfare cash assistance program (which is called TAFDC). You do not have to be receiving TAFDC to get SNAP — these are separate programs.

SNAP is a federal entitlement program. This means anyone who is eligible will receive benefits. You will not be taking away benefits from someone else if you apply.
