Compass.ga.gov food stamp application

The Georgia food stamp program is given to people in need of federal assistance, to purchase food. To qualify for food stamps, you must have an eligible income level based on a number of factors that influence your eligibility. If you are trying to apply for the food stamp program (SNAP), visit the COMPASS website  and use the eligibility calculator to determine if you can receive federal assistance. Once you have determined that you are eligible to receive federal benefits, you can apply for Georgia food stamps. We have provided information below on how to apply online or in person at a county office near you.

Do You Qualify for Georgia Food Stamps?

There are several questions you have to answer to determine whether you have met the criteria for SNAP benefits in the state of Georgia. Here are some of the questions you should have an answer to before you apply, especially when you meet for the in person interview that will determine whether you are approved for the program or not.

To determine if you are eligible, the state will ask you the following questions:
  • Are you a United States citizen?
  • Are you a resident of Georgia and can you prove it?
  • How many children are in your household?
  • What are your assets? This includes money that is saved in bank accounts or stocks. The more assets you have, the less likely you are to qualify. They will require documentation to show you have what you claim you have so be prepared with your documents.
  • What is your income? This includes money you earn from jobs but also other forms of income like baby-sitting, unemployment, or child support. This is probably the most important factor they are going to look at to determine how much your monthly food stamps amount is going to be. You should therefore gather all your documents and be ready to verify your income. If you have incomplete or missing information, that will delay your case further.
