EBT cards can be used on card readers at most major grocery stores, farmers’ markets, and USDA-approved retailers. Perks can be used to purchase most food items, except hot food or food sold for consumption in the store. After you make a purchase, the store receipt shows the amount of benefits remaining in your SNAP account.

Bonus offer: Open a new Citi Priority Account by 09/01/23 and earn up to $2,000 in bonus cash after completing the required activities.

To find where you can use your SNAP benefits, visit the United States Department of Agriculture’s SNAP retailer locator. Click “Enter SNAP Retailer Locator” and enter your address. For a list of markets that accept SNAP benefits, visit here.

You may qualify for SNAP if your household income is below the gross income limits for your household size. The maximum benefit amount for households receiving the SNAP has increased by 25% for the period from October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022.

You can apply for benefits through the ePASS online portal, in person at your county’s Department of Social Services office, or complete a paper application and drop it off or mail it to the DSS office.
