Indiana Farmers Market/Stand/CSA SNAP Matching Grant Program
The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation is currently offering grants to Indiana farmer's markets, farm stands, CSAs (community-supported agriculture), and mobile farm markets to start or expand a SNAP matching program. SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and was formerly known as food stamps. Benefits are provided on what looks like a debit card (called Hoosier Works) through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system. Indiana SNAP Matching Program grant recipients (hereafter grantees) will provide customers who pay with SNAP a $1 for $1 match up to $20 per day on all purchases of fruits and vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and edible plant starts. The $1 for $1 match may be provided via tokens, paper vouchers, etokens or other; it is recommended that these be offered in $2 increments. If tokens or vouchers are used, they should include the name of the market where they are issued because they can only be redeemed at that market. Farm stands that have only one vendor and sell only fresh produce may offer an immediate 50% off (up to $20 per day in incentive) at the point of sale to customers paying with SNAP and therefore do not need to use vouchers or tokens.
