New SNAP Requirements

Follow these guidelines to maintain food assistance eligibility.

Florida’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), often referred to as Food Stamps, requires that all Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWDS), age 18-49, must participate in the SNAP Employment & Training (E&T) program. (Read these Frequently Asked Questions for more information about SNAP and the ABAWD status).

The goal of the SNAP E&T program is to help unemployed recipients of food assistance benefits find work. In Citrus, Levy and Marion counties, CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion oversees the E&T program in partnership with Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO).

IMPORTANT
In order to maintain eligibility for food-assistance benefits, ABAWDS must complete 80 hours of work-related activity each month. 

If you are required to participate, you will receive a Notification of Mandatory Participation Letter from DEO. Once you have been referred to SNAP E&T, you must complete the following steps to maintain eligibility for food assistance.
