Elderly Simplified Application Project (ESAP)


Households do not have to do anything differently to qualify for ESAP. You apply the exact same way as you would apply for traditional SNAP. If your household qualifies for ESAP, you will be notified when your SNAP application is approved. Current enrollees are also included in ESAP.  Interested households can learn how to apply for SNAP by clicking here
