An easier way for older & disabled Vermonters to access 3SquaresVT – a program that helps you put healthy foods on the table.
Who Is Eligible To Use This Process
You may use this simplified process if EVERYONE applying is:
- At least 60 years old or getting disability benefits,
- Not earning income from a job or self employment, and
- Buying food and making meals together.
If you DON'T meet all the criteria above, you must use the regular process to apply for 3SquaresVT.
Who Is Eligible To Get 3SquaresVT Benefits
- Your gross household income must be equal to or less than 185% of the Federal Poverty Level.
- You may still qualify if your income is over limit, but we will consider the resources you own — with a few exceptions like your home and certain retirement accounts.
If Your Application Is Approved
- You’ll get money every month that you can use to buy food.
- You’ll get it as either cash in the bank or on an EBT card that works like a debit card.
You'll get to keep your benefits for three years with no additional paperwork. No annual reviews!
