Each Oct. 1, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) adjusts the income guidelines used to determine eligibility and the standards and deductions used to determine the monthly benefits an eligible family will receive. This toolkit provides tools and resources to help community organizations when working with SNAP applicants. It includes: a SNAP policy update, the 2016 SNAP Budget Worksheet, 2016 NYSNIP Matrix and updated SNAP Benefit Estimators.
More families may now be eligible for SNAP due to increases in the SNAP income guidelines! This includes families who previously had been slightly "over income.”
