Who We Are

The American Association of SNAP Directors (AASD) was formed to strengthen the administration and management of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and contribute to the professional development of its members.

Our Purpose

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 and nutrition assistance issues.
