Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides assistance to low-income families to purchase nutritious food items at approved grocery stores, and other retailers. Eligibility varies according to different factors, such as income, expenses and resources.
Who can apply:
- Any household member over 18
- An authorized individual that can use the SNAP benefits and go shopping on your behalf for food items such as a family member, neighbor, or a friend
SNAP benefits are issued via EBT cards to approved recipients.
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.
