Health Promotion is hosting a table in the Student Union on 10/19 from 11:30am to 2pm to help pre-screen students for eligibility for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.
CASWNY, a community agency, will have a sign-up sheet asking for students’ phone numbers and emails. They will then schedule a 10-15 phone call to conduct the SNAP eligibility prescreening (and can further assist with application process).
If all other criteria are met, students could get an EBT card that can help pay for food, up to approx. $250/month.
While the Covid emergency is in effect, eligibility for college students has expanded slightly.
Any student who is eligible for work study (whether completing hours or not) or who has “0” Estimated Family Contribution on the FAFSA form should apply.
NOTE: residential students must receive <=50% of meals from a meal plan to be eligible.
