The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) issues monthly benefits that can be used to purchase food at authorized retail food stores. SNAP benefits help low-income working people, senior citizens, the disabled and others feed their families.
A Fair Hearing is a chance for you to tell a hearing officer from OTDA, why you think a decision about your case made by a local social services agency is wrong.
OTDA will then issue a written decision which will state whether the local agency's decision was right or wrong. The written decision may order the local agency to correct your case.
