Florida Food Stamps Program helps low-income households to buy food for themselves and family members. A food stamp household is normally a group of people who live together and buy food and prepare meals together. If your household passes the Food Stamp Program’s eligibility rules, the amount of food stamp benefits you get will depend on the number of people in your household and how much monthly income is left after certain expenses are deducted.

What are the requirements?
“The following requirements can be found at Florida’s Department of children and families access website”

The people applying must meet all factors of eligibility to get food stamp benefits. Here are some of the basic requirements

  • Identity - A person must show proof that they are the person as claimed.
  • Work Rules - Able-bodied adults, 18 to 50 years of age, who do not have dependent children, can only get food stamps in 3 months in a 3-year period, if they are not working or participating in a work or workfare program, at least 20 hours per week.
  • Income and Deductions - Households must have monthly gross income less than or equal to 130% of the federal poverty level and net income less than or equal to 100% of the federal poverty level. Households containing individuals, age 60 or older or disabled must only meet the net monthly income limit. Some household expenses may be subtracted from the monthly income in the food stamp budget. Deductions are given for shelter expenses, child-care, medical, child support, and earnings.

Other Eligibility Requirements:

  • An individual must live in the state of Florida.
  • An individual must be a U.S. citizen or an individual who has a qualified noncitizen status.
  • Individuals must provide the number from the Social Security Administration or proof that application has been submitted for the number.
  • Certain individuals are required to cooperate with the state’s child support enforcement agency to establish paternity and obtain child support.
  • Households may have up to $2000 in assets (ex. Bank accounts and property, but not the home you live in or cars worth less than $8500) or if at least one person is age 60 or older or disabled, their household may have up to $3000 in assets.

Causes of Ineligibility

Individuals that are convicted of drug trafficking, fleeing felons, intentional program violators, ineligible noncitizens, and some students in institutions of higher education are not eligible for food stamps.

Food Stamp Purchases

Food stamp benefits can only be used for food and for plants and seeds to grow food for your household to eat. Food stamp benefits cannot be used to buy:

  • Any nonfood item, such as pet foods; soaps, paper products, and household supplies; grooming items, toothpaste, and cosmetics
  • Alcoholic beverages and tobacco
  • Vitamins and medicines
  • Any food that will be eaten in the store
  • Hot foods
