SNAP (food stamps)

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, helps people with limited income buy food. Benefits are provided on an electronic card that is used like an ATM card and accepted at most grocery stores. Some immigrants may be eligible for the program. Online application and renewal can be done via the ACCESS HRA website. For further information, visit the website or call HRA’s Infoline at 718-557-1399.

  • SNAP recipients can shop online for groceries at Amazon, Shoprite, or Walmart. (Note: SNAP benefits cannot be used to pay delivery fees. Be sure to confirm that an online store delivers to your home address.) Visit the HRA website.
