About SNAP

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps low-income households in purchase food. It provides a monthly benefit that helps families and individuals buy the food they need for good health.

    Eligibility for food assistance, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is determined by income limits set by the Federal Government. The assistance funds vary depending upon the household.  The determined amount is put into an account that is accessed with an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, also known as a Colorado Quest card.  This card can then be used to make purchases.

    Visit the Colorado SNAP website for more information about the program, eligibility requirements, and more.


    Submit an application online through the Colorado PEAK website: www.colorado.gov/PEAK

    If you cannot complete the application via the PEAK Website, you may print the Colorado Department of Human Services Application for Public Assistance here, in English or in Spanish.

    Completed applications can be dropped off, emailed to benefits@larimer.org or mailed to any of our offices.
