The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is administered by the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR). M4A partners with DHR to help individuals of any age apply for this benefit.
SNAP helps individuals purchase nutritious food by providing monthly benefits to eligible households.
The Alabama Elderly Simplified Application Project (AESAP) is designed to simplify the food assistance application process for households of those aged 60 or older with no earned income. There is a simple two page application and the process can be completed over the phone. If eligible, individuals can be certified for three years.
It is important for individuals applying for SNAP or AESAP understand the medical deductions that are allowable and can, therefore, help an individual qualify.
