Start getting your food stamp benefits today! Food stamps requirements for residents of Wisconsin who are in need of nutritional assistance are overseen by the FoodShare Wisconsin program. In addition to managing the requirements for food stamps throughout the state, FoodShare Wisconsin is in charge of making sure that the program falls in line with federal standards determined by the national Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program SNAP. How to qualify for food stamps will vary somewhat from applicant to applicant, depending on his or her household size, financial assets and other information.
SNAP helps low-income working people, senior citizens, the disabled and others feed their families. Eligibility and benefit levels are based on household size, income and other factors. SNAP benefits can help you put healthy food on the table. SNAP monthly benefits can be used to purchase food at authorized retail food stores.

Residency: You must be a current resident of NH, but you do not need to have lived here, or intend to live here, for any specified length of time. If you are homeless you may still be eligible for assistance. Financial requirements are broken into two components: income and resources. You are considered financially eligible for the Food Stamp Program if both income and resource requirements are met.
