The Federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly known as the food stamp program) provides vital assistance to thousands of families throughout Colorado. SNAP is also a form of indirect economic stimulus. SNAP benefits are spent at grocery stores, supermarkets, superstores and farmer’s markets across Colorado. In fact, in 2010 SNAP spending in Colorado supported roughly 15,000 jobs and produced more than $1.2 billion in economic output, according to CCLP estimates.
