Federal Government Expands Food Stamp (SNAP) Eligibility for Students
To address financial need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Department of Education announced a temporary policy that makes more students eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits (more commonly known as SNAP or "food stamps"). Students enrolled in at least half-time credit hours are now eligible under this temporary policy. Additionally, students must be eligible to participate in State or Federal Work Study and/or have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of 0 (zero) for the current academic year. All other eligibility requirements for SNAP benefits still apply.
The temporary policy is effective through 30 days after the COVID-19 public health emergency is officially lifted. Check with your local SNAP office for more information on eligibility and how to apply. For more information, visit the following link:
