SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. It was formerly known as food stamps and is run by the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA).
SNAP benefits include: • Monthly funds on an EBT card to buy food • $40, $60 or $80 a month put back on your EBT card when you use SNAP to buy local produce via the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) • SNAP Path to Work free education and training opportunities • Free nutrition education classes and resources • Connections to other kinds of help, like utility discounts, free school meals and discounted admissions to many Commonwealth museums and cultural institutions via EBT Card to Culture.
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides federal grants to states for supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age 5 who are found to be at nutritional risk.
You are automatically income eligible for WIC if you are currently receiving TAFDC, SNAP (Food Stamps) or specific types of MassHealth. Foster children under age 5 are also automatically eligible for WIC.
