Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAP)

The Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAP) is a Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas (FHLB) grant program serviced by local banks (in this case: First State Bank of Warren) and implemented by a local non-profit intermediary (in this case: Bradley County Chamber of Commerce) to provide a maximum of $10,000 subsidy per household for eligible home repairs.

Applicants must meet strict eligibility requirements, which are to be over 55 or have a disability, and to be considered low-to-moderate income. Applicants should reside in Bradley County. FHLB provides a table of income limitations based on number of household residents which we use to determine income limitation eligibility.  Proof of income is required, and type of proof is different based on type of income.  Proof of disability or age is required.   

We require two forms of identification and a copy of the deed to your property (in same name as applicant).  When you call for your appointment (870-226-5225), we will determine what we need for proof of income.

We will start making appointments beginning October 2nd, 2023. Call to make your appointment at 870-226-5225.

As with any government program, there is paperwork and multiple requirements to fulfill!
