SNAP Resources: New SNAP Senior Application, Updated Medical Expense Flier and more
We have developed some important SNAP resources for older adults for you to circulate to your community based organizations to help improve access to SNAP for older adults.
1. REVISED SNAP Application for Seniors!
We are thrilled to report that DTA has significantly revised the SNAP application form for seniors. The font is larger, the language is simpler, the key questions are better. Big thanks to DTA SNAP Policy team. MLRI and GBLS made significant recommendations to the language changes which DTA adopted.
