Exciting news!! Starting October 1st, 2022, Connecticut will expand the state's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This expansion will help many people, who were not previously eligible for SNAP, receive benefits and help them access nutritious food for them and their families.
"Expanding the eligibility levels will enable a greater number of individuals and families to qualify for this program and ensure increased access to quality, nutritious food at Connecticut supermarkets, grocery stores, and farmers markets, " Governor Lamont said. "By continuing our partnership with the federal government, actions like this will help in efforts to combat hunger and food insecurity."
