SNAP (Supplimental Nutiritional Assistance Program, formerly known as Food Stamps) helps low-income individuals and families by providing money to purchase food.

The HopeLine provides assistance with new and current applicants.

Applying for and receiving SNAP helps millions put more money in their pocket to afford other essentials such as rent and heat.

In 2020, The HopeLine secured over $460,216 in annual benefits and 141,000 meals to about 202 households. Working closely with the Food Bank for NYC and HRA (Human Resource Administration), The HopeLine is a go-to center for your SNAP needs.
