Until now, most students could only get SNAP if they are working 20 hours a week, receive work study, have young children, or have health problems.

Because of a new policy, now Pennsylvania’s community college students who are in programs that will improve their employability can also qualify for SNAP.

SNAP provides up to $192 a month in benefits to buy food at grocery stores. You can apply online. You will need to submit a form, completed by an official at your college.
