Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or Food Stamps)
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program, provides monthly benefits that help eligible low-income households buy the food they need for good health. Eligible households can receive food assistance through regular SNAP or through the Louisiana Combined Application Project (LaCAP).
LaCAP is a food assistance program for Louisiana residents who are at least 60 years of age and receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI). It is a simplified version of SNAP. If you are eligible for LaCAP, you will receive a Louisiana Purchase Card and SNAP benefits will be automatically deposited into your account every month.
*Households composed entirely of people who are applying for or receiving SSI may apply for SNAP benefits through regular SNAP at the Social Security Administration office unless they already have a SNAP application pending.
