Farmer Market vouchers available

 

January 11, 2018



Senior Farmer market vouchers are now available. No one is entitled to Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) checks because the budget does not allow enough checks to satisfy everyone who wishes to receive them and is eligible. Issuance is on a first come-first serve basis until all available funds are expended.

To qualify for SFMNP, the following age and income criteria must be met in order to receive SFMNP coupons.

A person must be 60 years of age or older on the day of application, no one under age 60 is eligible.

To be eligible on the basis of income, recipients’ gross household income must not exceed the following limits: $1,634.00 monthly for a household of one person; $2,203.00 monthly for a household of two people; $2,772.00 monthly for a household of three people; $3,341.00 monthly for a household of four people; $3,911.00 monthly for a household of five people; and $4,480.00 monthly for a household of six people.

A ‘household’ is a group of related or non-related individuals living together as one economic unit. These amounts are at 165% of 2016 Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Please call Escambia County Agency on Aging for any questions, and to apply 251-368-1032 extension 140 or 102. When calling please have your monthly gross income amount available. This is for State of Alabama residence only.
