Full Answer

According to the FDA, the name of the organization responsible for providing SNAP applications and benefits may vary. Some states have a Department of Social Services, while others may have a Department of Health and Human Services or a Department of Family Services. The USDA states that local SNAP departments may be listed in the telephone book yellow pages under the public assistance, social services or human services sections. In some states, it is possible to apply for SNAP benefits online. Links to state applications can be found on the USDA Department of Food and Nutrition website. Contacting local authorities, such as the Chamber of Commerce, may be helpful in finding local food stamp offices.
