End Hunger Connecticut!
SNAP/Food Stamp Prescreener



This Calculator will ask you a number of different questions about:

1. the people in your household
2. your income
3. your assets
4. your household expenses

The last part of the Calculator will tell you how much you may receive in SNAP/food stamps each month, how to apply for them, and how to print the SNAP/food stamp application.

The SNAP/Food Stamp Program has many rules. This calculator covers most of the rules, but not all of them. In certain circumstances you may be eligible for a different amount than the calculator tells you. Only the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS) can determine your eligibility and grant SNAP/food stamp benefits. When you finish the calculator, you will find out how to apply for SNAP/food stamps and the location of your local SNAP/food stamp office.


Before you begin please gather the following information:
-Incomes of everyone living in your house from jobs and other sources.
-Housing expenses such as rent and utilities.
-Most recent bank statement
