Do I Qualify for Nutrition Assistance (formerly the Food Stamp Program)?
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) establishes eligibility requirements for the Nutrition Assistance program. Eligibility is based on the household’s resources, income and other requirements such as residence, citizenship or qualified non-citizen status, and cooperation with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Employment & Training program. You may view our benefits chart or use the benefits estimator at www.arizonaselfhelp.org.
Even when you are unsure whether you qualify, you should still apply.
If approved for benefits, there are ongoing eligibility requirements including participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Employment & Training Program (SNA E&T).
After applying for benefits, you are required to complete an eligibility interview (also called a fact-finding interview).
Additional eligibility details are found in the Family Assistance Administration (FAA) policy manual.
