Long Island Anti-Hunger Initiative (LIAH)
LIAH is a collaborative outreach project that helps low-income Long Island residents receive nutrition assistance.
Outside of New York City, Long Island has the highest number of potentially eligible individuals not yet receiving assistance through The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP is a federally-funded program that stretches the monthly food budgets of all who meet program guidelines.
In existence since 2011, LIAH is a partnership of national, state, and Long Island partners who came together to address the area’s growing and changing needs for SNAP benefits. Using a combination of traditional outreach methods and technology-based strategies, LIAH focuses on reaching the newly unemployed, single-female-headed households, the working poor, older adults and documented immigrants.
LIAH program workers provide free outreach services including:
- Educational presentations
- SNAP pre-screenings
- Confidential one-on-one application assistance
LIAH partners include:
