EFAP Requirements

Application & Eligibility

For the tribal food voucher program, "the state sets a minimum requirement that clients simply declare they do not have the resources to feed themselves and their families. Tribes may have additional requirements that must be in writing such as the client must live in a certain geographic area or they may only access services so many times a year. However, providers may not discriminate against any class of people, though Indian preference is allowed." Questions regarding the application and eligibility requirements can be answered by contacting the EFAP tribal liaisons.
