Applicants are people who want to apply for SNAP benefits. Participants are people who are currently receiving SNAP benefits and would like to find out more about the program.

Learn how to apply to receive benefits, see the rules for receiving and using benefits, and find a local SNAP office. If you’re already receiving SNAP benefits, and you’d like to know why your case worker handled your case the way he or she did, you should be able to find information here.

The SNAP State Directory will help you find contact information for the state where you live.
