CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Catholic Charities West Virginia has launched a free program to assist people in applying for food stamps.

Catholic Charities was awarded an outreach grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as SNAP. The Walmart Foundation also underwrites the West Virginia program with a grant.

Catholic Charities says the funding will enable it to expand efforts to educate West Virginia families about food stamps and provide eligible families with enrollment assistance.

Besides the food stamp assistance, Catholic Charities can also assist West Virginians with other services, such as assistance paying utility bills.
