What’s EBT?

EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cards allow people to use their SNAP benefits at retailers who accept these EBT cards as a form of payment, similar to purchasing something using a credit/debit card. Accepting EBT cards first begins with making sure your store is authorized to do so. You must be licensed SNAP benefits retailer. To apply, click here or contact your local FNS field office.

Who should accept EBT?

Grocery stores, corner stores, convenient stores, supermarkets, pharmacy stores and farmers markets.
