The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) 
formerly known as “Food Stamps”

This is a federal program that is available for low-income individuals and families who are in need of assistance to meet their nutritional needs. The income limits for the program are located here. Those who meet the eligibility requirements for the program will receive a monthly benefit amount deposited to an Electronic Benefits Management (EBT) card. These benefits can be used to purchase food at many of our local grocery and convenience stores and the card functions like a debit card. Anyone interested in applying for SNAP can apply online here or complete a paper application available at the Schultz Health & Human Services building located at 405 Castle Creek Road, Aspen, CO 81611
