Barbour County DHHR Office is the local county office where you can apply for your EBT Card. EBT in West Virginia provides Supplemental Nutrtion Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, WV WORKS, Diversionary Cash Assistance and Child Support Incentive benefits by use of a card to access a benefit account. This method of benefit receipt and use replaces Food Stamp coupons and paper checks.
How To Apply:
The head of your household, or an authorized representative, must be interviewed by a SNAP benefits caseworker in the Family Support office. You may apply in any of the DHHR office, but your case will be carried in the county where you live. Complete and turn in your household's application as soon as possible.
Your household may name someone to be your authorized representative to act on your household's behalf in completing the interview for SNAP benefits and to use your benefits to purchase food for your household if you are unable to do so.
If your household needs help right away, you may be able to get your SNAP benefits within a few days after applying.
If it would be difficult for you to come in to the Family Support office, you can call the office and ask if you can be interviewed on the phone.
EBT is the US government\s electronic based system in the US for payment of monies to those approved for food and cash benefit payments.
Check EBT Card Balance
States have their methods to log in and check your ETB balance online. We provide that information on our state pages.
Apply for EBT Card
Most states allow online applications for EBT Cards through the application for Food Stamps (SNAP Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or cash benefits through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). We provided this local office contact for those who want to apply for their EBT in person at this office. After applying for your benefits you will most likely need to come in for an interview at this or another local social service office.
