Food stamp President offers $75,000 grants to groups that sign up more people on food stamps

While acting offended at the food stamp label, the Obama administration is trying to make more people dependent on the government for food assistance. President Obama is hoping people will vote their meal ticket in November.


Outreach Grants

FNS provides grants to non-profit organizations and others to improve access to SNAP by low-income persons and families.


The purpose of outreach grants is to implement and learn more about effective strategies to inform and educate potentially eligible low income people, who are not currently participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), about the nutrition benefits of the program, eligibility rules, and how to apply.

State and local food stamp offices and for-profit organizations are not eligible for these grants. Applicants receive up to $75,000 per grant for outreach activities lasting for 1 to 2 years, depending on the project.
