New short form makes it easier for seniors to apply for food support (video)
WILLMAR — The process for senior citizens to apply for food support is now shorter and easier than in the past.
A new one-page application for Minnesotans age 60 and older was rolled out this week.
It replaces a 10-page form.
The change was made by the Minnesota Department of Human Services as a way to encourage more seniors to apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program — known as SNAP.
