SNAP Benefits Available for 60 & Older or Disabled


   SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program formerly referred to as Food Stamps. The South Central Human Resource Agency has been asked by the State of Tennessee and the USDA to provide support to individuals 60 and over, along with disabled individuals of any age, by looking at their shelter costs and medical deductions (especially outstanding medical bills) to help determine eligibility for SNAP.
