The SNAP Hotline: Many eligible individuals do not participate in the SNAP program because the application process can be confusing or because they cannot visit a County Assistance Office. To ease these concerns, we launched the SNAP Hotline in 2002 to streamline the application process so that eligible households can apply for SNAP over the phone without going to a County Assistance Office.
Every year, the Coalition helps thousands of residents apply for SNAP through our SNAP Hotline. Residents of Bucks, Chester and Philadelphia counties can apply for SNAP benefits through our SNAP Hotline by calling 215-430-0556. Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and on Friday from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Our experienced hotline counselors will go through the application step-by-step, provide information on what to expect and help clients gather the necessary documents needed for the application. Our SNAP counselors also help with renewing benefits.
