Event Description

 

What would you do with an additional $148 for groceries?

 

Currently in Connecticut, 62,000 older adults are receiving assistance with their grocery bill through SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits.  Another 27,000 older adults are eligible, but have not applied.  AOASCC recently received a grant through the National Council on Aging to help close this gap by 500 individuals. 


 

Many don't apply for SNAP because they think that they will only receive a small amount in benefits. The truth is that the average benefit in Connecticut is $148 per month.  Some don't think they are eligible. Actually, the eligibility limits have increased, so even if you had applied previously and been rejected, you might now be eligible.

 

AOASCC is here to help, call 203-785-8533 or contact us through this online form.  You can meet with us at locations throughout the New Haven area (please contact us for an appointment).

 

Mondays: Fair Haven Branch Library
Wednesdays: Cornell Scott Hill Health Clinic
Thursdays: Wilson Library
Fridays: Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut
