The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP Benefits, formerly known as Food Stamp Program, are funded by the US Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). It is a program that provides monthly funds for food to eligible people so they can afford nutritious food essential to health.

The SNAP benefits program will follow the same payment schedules from month to month with the exact date varying from state to state. The only qualified SNAP household will receive their payments via electronic benefit transfer card or EBT card. It works similarly to a debit card. According to a statement from the Department of Social Services, the EBT card can be used for online purchases of food items, grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmer markets.
