The short answer: Yes felons can get food stamps, also know as SNAP benefits in most cases. Unfortunately there are some states and crimes such as drug convictions that may keep a felon from being granted food stamp benefits though.

Eighteen states have completely abandoned the federal prohibition on drug offenders receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, or food stamps. Twenty-six other states have partly eased those restrictions, often by providing the benefits only if the recipient complies with parole, does not commit a second offense, enrolls in treatment, etc.

Felons can generally receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits, also known formerly as food stamps in most of the 50 states. A ban on SNAP assistance only applies to felons convicted of drug charges – a ban that has been maintained in only 6 states.

Yes, you can qualify for the food stamp program with a felony offense on your record. However, there are some restrictions that apply. If you have a drug-related conviction, you may not be eligible for food stamps. With any other type of felony, you will probably qualify.

The policy denied SNAP and TANF benefits to ex-drug felony convicted persons. The ban, established under President Bill Clinton’s welfare reform law, includes anyone convicted of a drug felony. Hence, anyone in possession, use, or distribution of any controlled substance. The ban applies only to TANF cash assistance benefits.
