The Center for Hunger-Free Communities joined with Benefits Data Trust to release a report looking at the BenePhilly Program, a citywide initiative to improve access to benefit programs for low-income seniors.

In 18 months of operation the BenePhilly Program was able to submit over 8,200 SNAP applications on behalf of senior

households.  This report looks at how that incredible volume was accomplished.


We would like to thank Rachel Cahill, former Policy Analyst at the Center, for her hard work in writing this report.
