SNAP enrollment and education

More than 1 million Arizonans are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps. SNAP helps limited-income families expand their budgets to purchase food.  SNAP can be used to buy foods like fruits, vegetables, and meats at grocery stores, convenience stores, as well as farmers’ markets. It can also be used to purchase seeds and plants that produce food. 

TCAA can assist individuals and families with completing their application and offer relevant information to those interested in applying.

Call our general number at 480-422-8922.

This service available to all.
