Food Stamps – Close the Gap

 

Close the Gap services those individuals partaking in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly called food stamps. The program utilizes the help of two full-time Food Security Coordinators and is geared toward helping local residents get enrolled in the program.

To be eligible, individuals must meet certain criteria and provide materials including proof of income, proof of housing expenses such as rent or mortgage and utility payments, and proof of other expenses like child support, childcare or eldercare. However, if anyone in your household receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), no income limit is applicable.

To apply for benefits, applicants should bring in the required paperwork and meet with a Food Security Coordinator. The Food Security Coordinator will conduct pre-screening and will let applicants know if they able to proceed. Coordinators are also available to go on location to help with benefits enrollment by appointment.
