SNAP Food Assistance

Apply at a Human Services Office

Statewide

You apply for SNAP/food assistance at your county's Department of Human Services. You may be eligible for food assistance if you’re unemployed or work part time or don’t make much money, receive other public assistance, are elderly or disabled and have a small income, or are homeless. If you think you’re eligible, apply for food assistance right away. It can take up to a month to get started with the program. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive monthly benefits that are issued on the Colorado Quest Card, which looks like a credit card. Click on the website link for the Remerg.com list of every human services center in Colorado.
