Other Program Benefits for 3SquaresVT Participants

If you're eligible for 3SquaresVT benefits, you may also be eligible for many other programs that could save you thousands of dollars.

  • Fuel Assistance: Signing up for fuel assistance may actually increase your monthly 3SquaresVT dollar amount. 3SquaresVT gives people who get fuel assistance the highest deduction for shelter costs. You may be eligible for fuel assistance even if heat is included in your rent. Click here for information on how to apply.
  • Vermont WIC Program: WIC is your go-to resource for eating well, staying active and being healthy. WIC supports you with healthy foods, nutrition education and counseling, and breastfeeding support. If you’re pregnant, a caregiver, or a mom with a child under five, WIC is right for you!

  • Free School Meals: Kids in households that get a 3SquaresVT benefit cab also get free school meals if their school participates in the federal school breakfast or lunch program. Click to download an application.
  • Phone Assistance: You may also be eligible for a Lifeline Telephone Service Credit, a discount of at least $9.25 off your monthly phone bill. Click here for more information and an application.
  • TANF (Reach UP), Vermont Earned Income Tax Credit, SSI: People who receive any of these benefits are likely eligible for 3SquaresVT benefits. Even if they get $0 in 3SquaresVT benefits, they are still considered "eligible" and therefore qualify for Lifeline.
