Millions of New Yorkers need a little help getting enough healthy food for their families. We encourage you to take full advantage of benefits offered by SNAP and other NYS programs and services.

Apply for SNAP and Get an EBT Card You Can Use to Buy Food

When you apply and are approved for SNAP benefits in New York State, you will get an EBT (electronic benefits transfer) card, which you can use just like a debit card to purchase food at a store or a farmers market. Your benefits are automatically transferred to the card each month.
