SNAP benefits can help you put food on the table. SNAP monthly benefits can be used to purchase food at authorized retail food stores.

SNAP benefits are provided through an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, similar to a bank card or credit card. If you are eligible, an EBT account is set up for you, and every month your benefits will be deposited right into your account.
