Food Supplement Program

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), called the Food Supplement Program (FSP) in Maryland, formerly known as Food Stamps, helps low-income households buy the food they need for good health. Everyone has the right to apply for FSP. Click here to download the Income Guidelines

Applicants must file an application, be interviewed, and meet all financial and technical eligibility factors prior to issuance of FSP benefits. Some people who have little or no money may qualify for Expedited Food Supplement benefits right away. They must have only an interview and verify identity.

File an application with your Local Department of Social Services. You may also file an application by mail, fax, or go to myDHR to apply online.
