An EBT card is an electronic benefits transfer card which is loaded each month with benefits.

The card allows for the purchase of SNAP eligible foods, and stops the purchase of ineligible items.

You must apply with your household size as well as income.

Anyone with gross and net income lower that 200% and 100% of the federal poverty line will qualify.
