SNAP Navigator



As part of our commitment to strengthening our community, the Cumberland Cape Atlantic YMCA is proud to help connect our neighbors in Cumberland, Cape & Atlantic Counties to the New Jersey Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (NJ SNAP).

Individuals and families in need of food assistance to help make ends meet can find support right here at the Y.

We’ve been named a “SNAP Navigator” by the New Jersey Department of Human Services (NJDHS) and our team can answer your questions about eligibility and screening, and help you apply for New Jersey SNAP benefits.

This free and confidential program support is generously funded by NJDHS.

About NJ SNAP
NJ SNAP is a nutrition assistance program to help individuals and families with low incomes buy the groceries they need to eat healthy with a benefits card accepted in most food retail stores and some farmers markets.

Eligibility is determined by several factors, such as income and resources.
