    County or state offices that accept Food Stamp applications, determine eligibility for the Food Stamp program and allotments, and issue Food Stamp EBT cards which are presented at the grocery checkout counter when purchasing food. Certified households receive their EBT card and instructions for setting up a PIN number within 30 days of the date their application was filed. Expedited food stamps are available within seven days for people who are in an emergency situation and whose income and spendable resources for that month are within specified limits. Also included are other programs that help people prepare and file Food Stamp/SNAP applications and/or are authorized to do eligibility determinations for the program.

    Food/Clothing/Furniture Distribution ServicesThe Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the new name for the Food Stamp Program, provides monthly benefits for low-income people of all ages, including older adults (age 60+), to buy the groceries of their choice at participating grocery stores, bodegas, and participating farmers' markets. As an entitlement program, anyone who meets program guidelines for eligibility will receive SNAP benefits. Participants, or their caregivers, use an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card to buy food. New Yorkers apply for SNAP through their county Department of Social Services. In New York City, applications go through Human Resources Administration (HRA) offices. In many cases, people may be allowed to either apply online, or mail or fax in their application instead of making an office visit. Also, most older or disabled adults may be able to interview with a caseworker over the telephone, rather than face-to-face.AlbanySUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP)HUNGER SOLUTIONS NEW YORK
