Do Vehicles Count Toward the Food Supplement/SNAP Asset Limit?

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Households are allowed one vehicle.  But, other vehicles may also be excluded from the Food Supplement/SNAP asset limit if a vehicle is:

  • being used as your home;
  • primarily used for income-producing purposes (such as taxi cabs, commercial fishing boats, farm tractors);
  • needed for long-distance employment-related travel.  This does not include a vehicle that you use to get back and forth to work on a daily basis;
  • needed to transport a physically handicapped household member;  or
  • needed to carry most of a household’s fuel or water.
