The federal government program we know as food stamps is now called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). While SNAP is a federal program, it is administered at the state or local level. Eligibility for food stamps or the SNAP program is determined by an individual’s household resources including income, bank accounts, and vehicles. However, those who work part time or qualify for other public assistance programs may still be eligible for the food stamp program.
