SNAP Applications and Recertifications

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, provides food assistance for nearly 1.8 million low-income New Yorkers. We assist individuals and families in our community with applying and securing benefits from this much-needed program.

In addition to SNAP applications, we also provide recertification services for SNAP by appointment only. We are currently seeing SNAP clients from 8am to 2:30pm Monday through Thursday. Please call 718-574-0058 x259 for more information. It may take up to 24 hours to respond due to volume. Please be patient.
