SNAP is a federally funded program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered in Pennsylvania by the Department of Human Services (DHS), Office of Income Maintenance. SNAP benefits provide assistance to eligible individuals and families to supplement monthly food expenses. Eligibility and monthly benefit amounts are based on household size, income, and other factors such as citizenship and household composition. SNAP benefits are accessible through an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that works just like a regular debit card. All SNAP recipients are eligible for free nutrition education to help them make sound nutritional choices on a limited income. For more information and to find out where to apply, visit www.dhs.pa.gov/Services/Assistance/Pages/SNAP.aspx or contact the DHS Helpline at 1-800-692-7462 (PA Relay Services for the hearing and speech impaired at 711).
