SNAP (Food Assistance) Expanded Eligibility

During the public health emergency, a temporary federal rule change provides expanded eligibility for food assistance (SNAP benefits) to college students enrolled at least half time. Students that have a $0 expected family contribution (EFC) as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or students that have a Work Study Award as part of their financial aid, can now become eligible for Basic Food. For more details please see this page.
