You can apply for COMPASS food stamps online, at a local Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program office or by phone. Each state has its own SNAP office that processes food stamp applications.
To apply for COMPASS food stamps, locate your state COMPASS office online. Typically, you can either show up in person and complete a food stamps application at the office or call and have an application mailed to you.
Another way to apply for COMPASS food stamps is to apply online. Several states have online applications that you can fill out as an alternative to paper forms. Once you complete the online application, wait to receive a phone call, and proceed through the necessary interview. After the interview, wait to be notified of whether or not you are eligible to receive food stamps. Certain factors can impact your eligibility to receive food stamps, such as your income, living conditions and family size.
If you are eligible to receive food stamps, wait for the SNAP office to send you a food stamps card through the mail. Food stamp cards are reloaded once a month with a predetermined amount of money over a set period of time before you have to reapply.
