One of the main food aid programs provided by the United States government is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which provides benefits to low-income families to buy food using an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card.

Despite being a federal program, SNAP is administered by the states, so in order to claim benefits, it is necessary to apply with the state agency responsible for administering the program. Here we share the directory of state agencies where you can request payments.

SNAP benefits are delivered in all 50 states of the United States and the District of Columbia. However, amounts awarded are different for the 48 contiguous US states, Alaska and Hawaii.
