I adopted 5 children. I get a adoption subsidy. Is that counted as income when applying for food stamps ?

Q) I adopted 5 children. I get a adoption subsidy. Is that counted as income when applying for food stamps ?

A) If you are receiving adoption assistance payments for your children you may have questions about how adoption assistance interacts with other financial support programs. Because adoption assistance is not considered taxable income by the IRS*, you may think that it will not count as income for other government programs. But each program is different and many social assistance program do count adoption assistance—or a part of it—as income.

  1. To apply for food stamp benefits, or for information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), contact your local SNAP office. You can find local offices and each State’s application on the USDA national map. Local offices are also listed in the State or local government pages of the telephone book. The office should be listed under “Food Stamps,” “Social Services,” “Human Services,” “Public Assistance,” or a similar title. You can also call your State’s SNAP hotline numbers. Most are toll-free numbers.

    Each State has its own application form. If your State’s form is not on the web yet, you’ll need to contact your local SNAP office to request one. Please don’t call USDA or HHS headquarters as only your State accepts applications and determines eligibility.
