 I had snap benefits in Rockford. Do I need to re-apply from the beginning?

Q) I had snap benefits in Rockford which were ended in 2015. Do I need to re-apply from the beginning or is there something else to do? I recently moved to Freeport.

A) You will need to re-apply and qualify for SNAP benefits. If your household’s gross income is below these amounts, it does not ensure that you will be eligible for a benefit. A SNAP budget must be calculated for your household in order to determine eligibility and benefit amount. The only way to determine if your household is eligible for SNAP benefits is to apply.
