Fayette County CHFS Office is located at 455 Park Place, Lexington, KY – 40511. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP, is part of a federal nutrition program that helps qualifying low-income households purchase nutritious food. This program is designed to increase their nutritional level so that households can stay healthy. Individuals must apply for the program and provide all the required documentation. In order to qualify, applicants must meet certain financial criteria(income, assets) and non-financial (state residency, citizenship/alien status, work registration, and other) requirements. After the application is filed, the individual will be interviewed by a case worker and should be prepared to answer questions related to the household situation. Once it is determined that the applicant is eligible for SNAP benefits, an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card will be sent via mail to the address provided in the application. It will also include instructions on how to activate the card and choose a Personal Identification Number (PIN). The EBT card should be signed immediately.
