Panola County DHS-Economic Assistance

The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the food stamp program, offers monthly benefits that help low-income families buy the food they need for good health.
SNAP is a federal program administered locally by the Mississippi Department of Human Services.
At national level, SNAP is the largest programmed of the national safety net against hunger.
SNAP is intended as a supplement to one's own income to help ensure that nutritional needs are met.
People in the Mississippi who face food insecurity are strongly encouraged to apply for the program.
Help is available for those who have difficulty putting food on the table.

Persons eligible for SNAP include:  low-wage work, are unemployed or working part-time, receive TANF, SSI or other assistance benefits, are elderly or disabled and live on a small income.
The use of a SNAP pre-screening tool, available through the Food and Nutrition Service (SNAP), does not determine a household's eligibility for SNAP, but can be used to give you an idea of how eligibility is determined.
It is a way to provide the benefits of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) without paper coupons.
By using a plastic card that functions as a debit card, recipients can access their benefits at retail outlet (POS) devices.
Each household of the Mississippi SNAP Benefit receives an EBT card.
