Another way of putting food on the table and fighting food insecurity in our community is by offering assistance with applications for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. To ensure individuals, families, seniors, veterans and persons with disabilities have the help they need, our Benefits Connection Outreach program offers experienced, friendly and full-service SNAP application assistance at convenient locations in Brevard and Orange Counties. Learn more about SNAP.
Last fiscal year, our Benefits Connection team processed 4,452 applications which provided $9,233,954 SNAP benefits to our neighbors in need.
Since 2008, The Benefits Connection Program has submitted more than 66,000 SNAP applications, representing more than 110,000 individuals, for a total of over $115,000,000 in SNAP benefits. Click here to read the history behind our Benefits Connection program.
