The SNAP Food Assistance Program − formerly the Food Stamp Program, helps eligible low-income Ohioans stretch their food budgets and buy healthy food. A household may consist of an individual or a group of individuals who live together and usually purchase and prepare their food together.
You may qualify for benefits if your household’s gross monthly income is at or under 130% of the federal poverty guidelines. Some households may qualify if they have incomes over the limit if someone in the household is elderly or disabled. If your household’s income is under the limit, or if the limit does not apply, your benefit amount will be determined based on your household expenses.
This includes your:
Rent or mortgage costs
Payments for child support and child care
Other factors in determining eligibility include the number of people in your household who purchase and prepare food together and, in some situations, resources such as cash, savings and stocks.
