Saguache Department of Social 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.
