Food and Nutrition Services
A program, mandated by the Federal Government, which provides a monthly allotment of food assistance via an EBT card to eligible households.
The program is designed to help “supplement” families that meet income limits, which the government has provided, according to household size.
Applicants must meet income, household composition, citizenship/immigration status and applicable resource limits to be eligible for assistance.
