SNAP Benefits

You may be eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) administers SNAP benefits. SNAP provides a monthly benefit to buy nutritious foods. To get SNAP, you must be low-income and be a U.S. citizen or legal noncitizen (restrictions apply). Eligibility for SNAP benefits depends on financial and nonfinancial criteria.

The Literacy Center is an approved Massachusetts SNAP Path to Work provider.

If you need help applying for SNAP benefits, call or text Ashleigh at (508) 455-5382

As of May 29, 2020, SNAP benefits may be used to purchase groceries online
