Food and Nutrition Service

Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Pre-Screening Tool.

OMB Control Number: 0584-0519.

Summary of Collection: This is a renewal of an existing information collection. Consistent with Section 5 of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has developed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Pre-Screening Tool to enable the public to determine the potential eligibility for benefits in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Need and Use of the Information: The pre-screening tool allows users to enter the household size, income, expenses and resource information in order to calculate an estimated range of benefits that the household may be eligible to receive. Since SNAP eligibility and benefit amount may vary based on program options States have implemented, FNS makes it clear that the tool is only an estimator and the household will need to contact the local agency to determine actual eligibility and the associated benefit amount.

Description of Respondents: Individuals or households.

Number of Respondents: 380,283.

Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion.

Total Burden Hours: 63,507.
