The SNAP program helps provide healthy foods to low-income families. If you are eligible for SNAP, you will receive an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is used like a debit card at the grocery store. The card uses money from a SNAP account set up for the eligible family to pay for food items. The benefits can only be used on eligible food purchases.
Immediate food assistance is available: If you need food assistance immediately, and are eligible, we can provide benefits within seven days. You must meet certain criteria in order to qualify for the expedited services.
