Volunteers for this virtual opportunity will call back SNAP applicants within 2 weeks after their application was submitted to go through a check list to provide encouragement that they submit all required documents and interview process and support the client follow through in order to get their applications approved. This checklist will ensure they have been in contact with a SNAP representative, that they have submitted all documents needed, and they have set up an appointment for a SNAP interview with the SNAP office. They will also answer client's questions regarding the SNAP application submission process or direct the clients to the correct contact to find out more information and move forward. This volunteer opportunity will help to encourage clients to follow through and take the final steps to getting their SNAP applications approved to receive food benefits.
