Eligibility for SNAP benefits is based on your income and the number of people in your household. To see if you may be eligible, review the following chart.
|Household Size||1||2||3||4||5||6||Each additional|
|Gross Monthly Income||$1,987||$2,686||$3,386||$4,087||$4,786||$5,485||+$701|
Meeting the above income guideline is the first step toward SNAP eligibility.
The second eligibility step must be determined by DHS. They will deduct certain expenses from your income to see if you meet the net income test.
If anyone in your household is elderly or disabled and your income is higher than the amount in the chart, you may still be eligible.
The only way to know for sure if you qualify is by applying for SNAP.
