SNAP, the New York State Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is the new name for the food stamp program. SNAP benefits help low-income working people, senior citizens, the disabled and others feed their families healthy food.

SNAP issues monthly electronic benefits that can be used like cash at authorized retail food stores and participating farmers markets. Eligibility and benefit levels are based on household size, income, assets and other factors.
