The Georgia Food Stamp Program, Federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is a federally-funded program that provides monthly benefits to low-income households to help pay for the cost of food. A household may be one person living alone, a family or several unrelated individuals living together who routinely purchase and prepare meals together.
Anyone may apply for food stamp benefits. The program helps households that have limited income and resources.
How to Apply for SNAP Benefits:
Step One: Get Prepared

Step Two: Complete and submit an application for benefits
How to apply:
You can request a paper application by visiting your local DFCS office, or by calling the Customer Contact Center at 877-423-4746 and asking that an application be mailed to you.
An application is considered filed when it has the name of the head of household, address, date and signature of the head of household or another household member, and is received by the Department.
2. Submit an application by mail or in person to your local Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) office. You can find a list of contact information for your local county office.
Step Three: The Interview
After your application is filed, you or a member of your household must be interviewed by a staff person from DFCS. The person who is interviewed must know about your household situation. A phone interview is required.
Senior SNAP is a simplified application project designed to make it easier for seniors to receive food stamp benefits. For elderly/disabled individuals experiencing problems coming to the office, an interview may be completed by telephone or an office visit. An application may also be requested by phone and mailed to the household.
