The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerlly known as the Federal Food Stamp program, enables disabled individuals and low-income families to buy nutritious food with Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards. Food stamp recipients spend their benefits to buy eligible food in authorized retail food stores.
The program is operated by State and local welfare offices, and the Federal Government oversees the State operation of the Program. The program is in operation in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Individuals who are receiving disability and other government assistance may qualify. Download a fact sheet (PDF) about food stamps for people with disabilities.
