Food Stamps in Kentucky

Any household meeting basic income requirements may be able to receive benefits from the Kentucky Food Stamp Program, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP. A household is any individual, family, or group of people who live, purchase, and eat food together.

Children over 21 who live with their parents may qualify for their own food benefit account if they buy and prepare food separately from their parents. Adult siblings living together, but not with their parents, who purchase and prepare food separately may also have different SNAP benefit accounts.

The following individuals must be included in one household account, even if they purchase and prepare meals separately:

-A spouse of any household member
-Parents living with their natural, adopted, or stepchildren who are 21 or under
-Children younger than 18 who are dependents of an adult household member.
