Nevada residents may be able to get help if they find that affording nutritious food is difficult. The Nevada State Division of Welfare and Supportive Services has a program called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Families can apply for SNAP benefits, also referred to as food stamps, by visiting their local Social Services office, or by filling out the online downloadable application.
Applicants must gather information on all of their sources of income. This includes wages, self-employment income, interest, child support, unemployment benefits and SSI. Applicants must accurately report income of every member in the home on the application. The application must present income documents to a case worker from the Social Services office for verification at a scheduled interview.
Income is not the only factor in determining food stamp eligibility. Housing expenses, such as mortgage or rent, utilities, taxes and insurance will be taken in to account. Child support payments, daycare expenses and medical payments made for individuals over the age of 60 are also taken into consideration. Applicants must list these expenses on the application, and bring documents to prove the expenses at the interview.
