We Create Financial Opportunities for Our Community

Dear friends and neighbors,

Welcome to our website. SNAP Financial Access is an invaluable tool our region has to strengthen individual financial independence and economically revitalize our communities. It is my distinct honor to serve as CEO of SNAP and SNAP Financial Access.

SNAP as a whole focuses on stabilizing our neighbors, providing them with their basic needs, and equipping them to exit poverty. SNAP Financial Access is a subsidiary of SNAP that has an enhanced focus on preparing our neighbors to thrive. This division of SNAP provides financing and consulting services to entrepreneurs, small business owners, and families. Through loans and consulting, the financial stability team contributes to building new and strengthening existing businesses, creating additional employment, and rehabilitating and creating new homeownership.

I am grateful to have SNAP Financial Access as an important part of the SNAP family. The work done at SNAP Financial Access is a natural extension of the work our agency does as a whole. Not only is this an important part of SNAP, this is an instrumental part of our community. SNAP Financial Access has a long track record of creating new businesses, new homeowners, and newly-empowered neighbors. I am confident in our continued ability to lead Spokane to economic revitalization and long-term stability.
