To qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), applicants must meet certain non-financial and financial requirements. Non-financial requirements include state residency, citizenship/alien status, work registration and cooperation with the IMPACT (job training) program. Financial criteria include income and asset limits.

Assets include bank accounts, cash, real estate, personal property, vehicles, etc. The household’s home and surrounding lot, household goods and personal belongings and life insurance policies are not counted as assets in the SNAP program.

Households with members who are elderly or disabled, as well as households which pass the gross income test, must also pass a net test to qualify. Elderly households are those which contain members age 60 or older. Disabled members are those who receive disability payments, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), veteran’s disability, or Medicaid as a blind or disabled individual. If someone is already on a rental assistance program or wants to apply for Section 8 in Indianapolis Indiana, it does not affect their eligibility.

If the household has net income below the above amounts, and meets all other criteria, the SNAP allotment received is based on the household size and net monthly income.
