SNAP Food Assistance
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides monthly assistance in the form of an EBT card that can be used to purchase food for your family.
— For more information & application: http://www.maine.gov/mymaineconnection
— If you have lost SNAP benefits in the past, you may be eligible again! New laws have suspended work requirements and the three month time limit.
— The state government has boosted all SNAP households to the maximum benefit for at least two months,so if you receive increased benefits this month it is not a mistake!

General Assistance
— Everyone has a right to apply for General Assistance (GA) at your municipal office. GA can be used to payfor basic necessities, including shelter, rent, food, heat, electricity, and medicine. Currently all applicationswill be considered emergency applications.
