APPLY for SNAP and OTHER AID
Application Process and Eligibility Information
Our Social Services Outreach team helps people fill out applications for the following programs administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC):
SNAP (Food Stamp) Program*
This nutrition program assists individuals and families with little or no income to buy the food they need for good health.
An individual or a family may be eligible for this nutrition program even if they own a home, live on the streets and don’t have a mailing address, or are children of undocumented immigrants if the children are citizens or legal permanent residents.
Tarrant Area Food Bank’s Social Services Outreach staff not only answer questions about benefit programs and help individuals and families apply for them, but they also, upon request, deliver the completed applications to the appropriate Texas Health and Human Services offices.
For more information, call Toll-Fee Information Line: 1.866.430.6134.
