SNAP Benefits

Tri-CAP can provide information about the state run SNAP program (formerly known as Food Support and Food Stamps). We provide applications and assistance in completing applications. The counties administer the program and will confirm if a person or household qualifies for benefits or not. Make sure to check out the Resources page for information on additional food resources.

You can have more money for food by applying for SNAP benefits. Assets are not counted or verified.

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you may be eligible to receive SNAP benefits.

  • Do you or anyone who lives with you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
  • Do you or anyone who lives with you receive General Assistance (GA) or Minnesota Supplemental Aid (MSA)?
  • Do you receive either Transition Year Child Care or Basic Sliding Fee Child Care assistance (CCAP)?
  • Do you participate in the Diversionary Work Program (DWP) or Work Benefit (WB) program?
  • Is your monthly income below the income amounts listed?
