Who We Are

The American Association of SNAP Directors (AASD) is an affiliate of the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA). The AASD was formed to strengthen the administration and management of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly the Food Stamp Program) and contribute to the professional development of its members.


AASD promotes the exchange of experience and knowledge among those agencies of federal, state, and local government administering SNAP by providing expert advice and consultation on SNAP and other income assistance issues.


This web site is intended to be a clearinghouse for useful information concerning SNAP, other income assistance programs, and nutrition issues in general and how they relate to APHSA's focus on serving families holistically and strengthening their long-term health and well-being.
