Tips On How To Apply For The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP)

Individuals that meet specific income criteria may be eligible to receive government assistance. The Food Supplement Program (FSP) was designed to assist low-income Marylanders to obtain the appropriate food sources to maintain good health. This is a non-discriminatory governmental program, so everyone has the right to fill out an application and submit it to the Maryland Department of Human Resources.
