Purpose

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Participation Grants offer funding to support projects aimed at simplifying the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) application and eligibility determination systems or improving access to SNAP benefits.

Grantees should look for ways to make the entire process easier and more efficient for applicants and participants. Proposals should focus on improving the quality and efficiency of operations and processes within the SNAP office. Specifically, FNS is interested in initiatives that use new technologies or examine office processes in order to improve application processing timeliness for initial applications or re-certifications. In addition, FNS is also interested in proposals that aim to increase the effectiveness of employment and training activities.

Eligibility

The entities eligible to receive grants under this competition are:

  • The 53 state agencies that administer the SNAP
  • State or local governments
  • Agencies providing health or welfare services
  • Public health or educational entities
  • Private non-profit entities with 501(c)(3) status, such as community-based or faith-based organizations, food banks, or other emergency feeding organizations.

If the grant proposal is from an entity other than a state agency, it must show that a State agency strongly endorses or is intimately involved in the proposed project in order to be considered.
