Food Stamp Applicant's Rights

Taken from the FNS Website:

Your Rights

You have the right to:
  • Receive an application when you ask for it.
  • Turn in your application the same day you receive it.
  • Receive your food stamps (or be notified that you are not eligible for the program) within 30 days after you turn in your application.
  • Receive food stamps within a few days if you are eligible and have little or no money.
  • Have a fair hearing if you disagree with any action taken on your case.
If you believe that you or any group of individuals have been discriminated against by the Food Stamp Program because of age, sex, color, race, handicap, religious creed, national origin or political beliefs, write immediately to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.
