Tishomingo County DHS - Economic Assistance

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, provides a monthly benefit to help low-income families purchase the foods they need for their health.

SNAP is a federal program administered at the local level by the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

At the national level, SNAP is the largest programme in the domestic hunger safety net.

SNAP is intended as a supplement to its income to meet nutritional needs.

Mississippi residents facing food insecurity are urged to apply for the program.

Help is available for those who are struggling to put food on the table.

* working for a low wage.* being unemployed or working part-time.* receiving TANF, SSI or other welfare benefits.* being elderly or disabled and living on a low income.

The use of a SNAP pre-screening tool, available through the Food and Nutrition Service, does not determine whether a household is eligible for SNAP, but can be used to give you an idea of how a household is determined to be eligible for SNAP.

It is one way to take advantage of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program without paper coupons.

Using a plastic card that acts like a debit card, beneficiaries can get their benefits at a retail point of sale device.

Each family of Mississippi SNAP Benefits will receive an EBT card.
