We know that eating a healthy diet helps people be their best at home, work and school.  We also know that not everyone in Connecticut has the same opportunity to put healthy food on the table.  The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP; formerly known as Food Stamps) allows low-income residents to buy food with an EBT card at stores and farmers markets in their area.  The program helps its recipients and their local economies by increasing spending at local businesses. CHCACT is the statewide outreach contractor for the SNAP program. Working in collaboration with the health centers listed below, CHCACT aims to increase SNAP enrollment in CT to allow more residents to access healthy food. SNAP outreach workers will regularly reach out in community areas (senior centers, churches, farmers markets and more) as well as talk to health center patients to help people learn about SNAP and how to apply. For more information call CHCACT at 860-667-7820 or email ask@chcact.org!

  If you think you might qualify, or know someone who might qualify, we can help.  Below is a list of outreach workers who can screen for eligibility and provide application assistance for those who appear eligible. Everyone receiving application assistance should bring proof of all sources of income (including the previous four pay stubs), proof of address, a working telephone number and the social security numbers for all members of the household.  Households with someone age 60+ and/or disabled should also bring proof of out of pocket medical expenses.
