The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits have helped millions of Americans across the country to meet their daily needs and buy nutritious food. However, millions have not received their SNAP benefits due to some problems experienced by the assigned agency.
In a published article in FOX8, the Department of Social Services in Davidson County is now pulling people from other departments to help them process the documents and massive backlog. The county is about six weeks behind in processing recertifications and new applications.
