I was released from prison. Want to know if I qualify for any type of help.

Q) I was released from prison 12/5/18 and have been let go from my job due to my being a felon. I want to know if I qualify for any type of help or assistance and if I can get any medical coverage or support?

A) You can generally qualify for food stamps – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and other assistance after being released from prison. Whether you are convicted or not and are incarcerated or released from incarceration, you can always sign up for your state’s Food Stamp and other social service programs.

  1. 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.
