Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAP) The Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAP) assists with the acquisition of adaptive equipment and devices. SNAP funding can be used to purchase items and to obtain services intended to enhance independent living. Medical and non-medical assistive devices covered under SNAP could also significantly increase day-to-day functioning. Bath benches, walkers, hearing aids, automobile hand controls, and wheelchair rentals are a sampling of the assistive technology SNAP covers. Although funding limitations exist SNAP can reduce or eliminate dependency and make it possible for people with disabilities to lead full and productive lives. If you would like more information about this program, you may reach Maria Valentin at (201) 996-9100 ext. 18 or (201) 996-9494 TTY. SNAP is funded through the Bergen County Department of Human Services and United Way of Bergen County. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Applicant: Welcome to the Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAP) administered by Heightened Independence and Progress (hip).
