How to apply for food stamps by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits

Known previously as “food stamps,” the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can help you pay for food if you have a low income.

Each month, SNAP benefits are added to an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card to use when you shop for food.

To be eligible for SNAP benefits, you must meet your state’s requirements, including income limits. States can also take other resources into account, like the money you have in your bank, to decide if you qualify for SNAP.
