SNAP (previously called Food Stamps) is an income based program intended to supplement the food budget of eligible households. SNAP benefits are provided through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. This card is used as a debit card at authorized grocery stores. An EBT account is set up for eligible applicants and every month benefits are deposited to the account. SNAP Applications can be made online at www.mybenefits.ny.gov or at our office on the computers located in our lobby. More information about SNAP and the SNAP USDA Nondiscrimination Statement can be found online at otda.ny.gov/programs/snap/. Information on the OTDA website is accessible in many languages by clicking on translate.
