You may obtain an application at the office, or one may be mailed to you. You may mail it, bring it in, or fax it back to us. Our fax number is 757-220-6113. You may also apply on-line at commonhelp.virginia.gov.
We encourage you to complete the application as quickly as possible; the date of the application determines the processing time and amount of benefits for the first month.
You may be eligible for expedited processing, which means that you will receive your benefits within 7 days. Normal processing time for SNAP is 30 days.
We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm excluding Holidays. The City of Williamsburg, Department of Human Services office is located at 401 Lafayette Street on the first floor of the Municipal Building.
Separate rules exist for the SNAP program and other programs so the entire household should apply even if other programs have limitations on the receipt of benefits.
YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO APPLY FOR FOOD STAMPS THE SAME DAY YOU CONTACT THE AGENCY FOR ASSISTANCE.
