The HopeLine provides assistance with new and current applicants.
SNAP (Supplimental Nutiritional Assistance Program, formerly known as Food Stamps) helps low-income individuals and families by providing money to purchase food. Applying for and receiving SNAP helps millions put more money in their pocket to afford other essentials such as rent and heat.
In 2018 The HopeLine provided 100 families secure over $450,000 in annual benefits. Working closely with the Food Bank for NYC and HRA (Human Resource Administration), The HopeLine is a go to center for your SNAP needs.
