Public Benefits

Feel Alone & Financially Insecure? 

Public Benefits are one of many resources to help you become and remain financially secure. Step Up Savannah is here to help you in your journey towards financial security by connecting you with the right resources.

SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is the program formerly known as food stamps. It is a federal nutrition program that helps you stretch your food budget and buy healthy food and provides monthly benefits via an EBT card. 

Medicaid and other healthcare resources such as PeachCare for Kids are no to low cost health insurance options for uninsured families.

Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS) supports early education goals by assisting low-income families with the cost of child care while they work, go to school or training, or participate in other work-related activities.

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) is a time- limited, income-based program that provides cash assistance to families with children when parents or other responsible relatives cannot provide for the family’s needs.

Provides food and nutrition assistance for households with children ages 1-5. You must apply in-person at a Chatham County health department office:
