The benefit program, SNAP, stands for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — more commonly known as food stamps. SNAP is a federal program that helps low-income Americans put food on the table. With millions of families across the United States utilizing these benefits, SNAP is the largest hunger-fighting program in America.

On December 5th, 2023 DCF launched a new version of the MyACCESS portal used to apply for SNAP benefits. The new portal has been designed to improve the experience for users, increase efficiency, and deliver eligible government assistance more promptly. If you are currently receiving SNAP you will continue to receive your benefits throughout this transition. All recipients will need to create an account to re-apply for benefits, but you can link your existing cases once you create a new account. You can find Frequently Asked Questions about MyACCESS at If you need help navigating this transition our SNAP team is here to support you!
