Community Action makes getting food stamps a SNAP

Community Action Partnership of Ramsey & Washington Counties was awarded $120,900 to establish a Food Support Program. Funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and Greater Twin Cities United Way, this program will increase both awareness of and access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) among low-income households throughout Community Action’s service area.

In a recent report titled How Effective Are We?, Ramsey County Community Human Services stated that “In 2008, 60% of those eligible for food support in Ramsey County received their benefits.” Thousands of eligible Ramsey County residents are not receiving food support benefits. The report further noted that seniors in particular have a “lower rate of participation.” Making food support available to eligible people frees up funds for other basic necessities such as transportation, rent and medical care.
