In 2015, only 42% of eligible seniors participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The Elderly Simplified Application Project (ESAP), which is currently operating in eight states, is a collection of policy and process changes that can streamline enrollment of low-income seniors into SNAP. Benefits Data Trust (BDT) and NCOA produced an advocate’s guide that educates state-based aging and anti-hunger advocates about ESAP and suggests ways they can engage their state agency leaders to create ESAPs. Join NCOA for this webinar to learn more about the advocate’s guide and results from ESAPs.
