Q) Hello, my name is Tonia C******n; I applied for snap food stamps program, at the Steel street human services location, on 19/06/01514 East food lobby. I was given a tracking verification number(1******O). I was told to give the process a month if I wasn’t contacted by someone in the department, I should call the number given to me and I would be informed if I needed to provide more information before I could receive assistance. I have tried to contact someone, at the Steel Street location. But I haven’t been successful. I have no computer, of my own, but a friend has let me use his email site so that I can receive important information, like this opportunity to see where my eligibility status is, also for the record, my mobility and transportation is limited, because of my present medical condition, so this is very helpful ane God sent. I do have a number, that I can be contacted through, (720) 6**********3.
Thank you for providing a way for my voice to be heard.
A) You may need to call or get some assistance in order to visit your local social service office regarding your application for snap food stamps assistance program. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federally funded program to provide food assistance to low-income individuals and families. SNAP is funded by the federal government and administered through the states. Many states also work with other local agencies to provide ongoing nutritional education and training to SNAP recipients.
You can apply for food stamps online in most states, or at a local state or county office. Once the initial application is filled out, you will follow up with a face-to-face interview, and you will be required to provide verification of your income and expenses. If you are elderly or physically unable to travel to the office for the interview, you can apply for a waiver. If granted, the face-to-face interview will be replaced with a phone interview or home visit.
