With over 19% of total Tennessee residents currently receiving food stamps, it is important that food stamp recipients know where their local Department of Human Services (DHS) office is located. The Department of Human Services is responsible for administering the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Tennessee. If you are applying for SNAP, you will have to visit your local DHS office to conduct your in-person application interview. You can also apply for SNAP benefits, report a change, request additional benefits or get information about your current benefits at your local DHS office.
For those individuals who do not currently receive SNAP benefits, but would like to do so, you can apply for benefits in-person at your local DHS or online, here. If you need help on the application process follow our step-by-step guide on how to apply for food stamps in Tennessee. Before you go through the application process, please be sure that you are deemed as eligible to receive SNAP benefits in Tennessee. Eligibility is based upon monthly income, expenses and household size. View our Tennessee food stamps eligibility guide for more information.
