A person or family can apply anytime for Food Assistance. Your income from employment, self-employment, child support, unemployment, Pensions, Social Security, Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security income, or rental income all count toward being eligible to receive assistance. Basic eligibility is calculated on the gross monthly income received, before taxes have been deducted.
All individuals who apply for food assistance in Colorado and do not meet federal exemption criteria must participate in Employment First Program.
