Students enrolled in Career and Technical Education programs now qualify for food assistance from the state’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) through the State of Michigan. SNAP offers nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of families and individuals so they can purchase healthy food.
Career students should offer documentation confirming their program of study when applying in order to determine their eligibility for SNAP. Examples could include a proof of registration and a document showing their program or course of study. A caseworker will use that information to determine eligibility. To apply, go to www.michigan.gov/MIBridges.
