Community Resource Guide: Food Stamps Application and Information

SNAP Benefits(Food Stamps)

SNAP provides a monthly cash benefit, on a debit card called a "EBT" card, to buy nutritious foods at a grocery store.

To receive SNAP, you must be low-income, and you or your children must be a U.S. citizen or legal noncitizen (restrictions apply).

The EASIEST way to apply is online. (Available online in English, Spanish, Portugese, Chinese and Vietnamese.)

However, you can also print and complete a paper application and mail it.
