Texas SNAP benefits are administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and can be used to purchase most foods, seeds, and plants to grow food, excluding hot foods when sold or food sold for consumption in the store. Benefits are distributed once a month to Texas Lone Star cards – the state’s EBT card.

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.

Texas Lone Star Cards can be used at major grocery stores or retailers, as well as any store with a Lone Star Card sign. If you don’t see it, ask a store employee. You can check your Lone Star Card balance and view recent card activity through your online account at YourTexasBenefits.com.

Your Texas Lone Star card can also be used online, but it cannot be used at all stores that offer online shopping. Check here for authorized online retailers.

SNAP is for low-income households who meet the program rules. According to Texas HHS, most adults between the ages of 18 and 49 with no children in the household are only eligible for SNAP for three months in a three-year period. However, the benefit period may be longer if the person works at least 20 hours a week or participates in a job or training program.

If you live in a household where all members are either elderly (60+) or disabled, you can apply for the Texas Simplified Application Project (TSAP). This is a simplified SNAP application that provides three years of benefits instead of six months.

The date you receive your Texas SNAP food benefits is based on the last digit of your Eligibility Determination Group Number, with benefits being deposited on Lone Star cards 15 days from the first day of each month.
