Jefferson County Department of Human Services Details

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP, is part of a federal nutrition program that helps low-income individuals in Colorado purchase nutritious food. County human services departments are responsible for determining eligibility and authorizing SNAP.

The amount of benefit provided is based on income, resources and the number of individuals in the household. SNAP benefits are issued on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, also known as the Colorado Quest Card. This EBT card can be used just like a debit card at authorized food stores. The SNAP benefit can be doubled in value by shopping at participating markets and food stores that support the Double Up Food Bucks program.

Documents Required:

    • Social Security number for all household members
    • Proof of monthly income

      I need to submit a SNAP claim via phone if possible, as I don't have available transportation to come to your office.
