The SNAP program (Formerly known as Food Stamps) is designed to raise the nutritional level of low income households by increasing available food purchasing dollars with food stamp benefits.

Medicaid and Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) are programs for families with low income for healthcare coverage.

The Indiana Manpower And Comprehensive Training (IMPACT) service provides to TANF and Food Stamp recipients job-related services to help them become economically self-sufficient.
