The Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Program (SNAP) now pays people of Ohio who are eligible for food stamps on a set schedule every month based on the last digit of their case number.
Low-income households can get nutrition subsidies under the federal SNAP program. The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services administers the program even though it is a part of the United States Department of Agriculture (DJFS).
Ohio’s household size and income requirements determine who is eligible for food assistance. You can apply for SNAP benefits either online at Benefits.Ohio.gov or by mailing a paper application to the SNAP office in your county.
Additionally, you can submit a SNAP application online at your neighborhood Ohio Benefit Bank.
Following SNAP approval, monthly payments are made into SNAP accounts connected to your Ohio Direction Card, the state of Ohio’s take on EBT cards. This card functions exactly like a debit card and may be used both in-store and online.
You can get special offers with your Direction Card on specific goods and services. Ohio SNAP participants can subscribe to Amazon Prime EBT reduced for $6.99 per month, saving them nearly 50%.
Additionally, you can use your EBT card to get free or reduced entry to hundreds of zoos, aquariums, and museums around Ohio and the country. The federal Lifeline program offers free or inexpensive landline or cell phone service if you need assistance paying your phone bill.
Depending on the final digit of your case number, benefits are transferred onto Ohio Direction Cards between the second and the twentieth of every month. The SNAP deposit schedule for Ohio for February 2023 is as follows:
|Case number ends in:||Benefits available:|
Wherever the Ohio Direction Card sticker is displayed, including most supermarkets and certain establishments, Direction Cards may be used.
You can buy fresh vegetables at farmers’ markets with your EBT card as well. Produce Perks offers free fruits and vegetables to Ohio SNAP clients up to the value of $25 per visit.
Dollar for dollar, this program matches SNAP payments. You will receive an additional $25 worth of tokens, for instance, if you spend $25 on tokens at a participating market.
The following food items are available for SNAP users to buy with their Direction Cards:
- Fruits and vegetables
- Meat, poultry, and fish
- Dairy products
- Bread and cereals
- Snack foods and non-alcoholic beverages
- Seeds and plants that produce food for the household to eat
Alcoholic beverages, cigarette goods, vitamins, medications, dietary supplements, live animals, and other non-food items are among the things you can’t purchase with SNAP benefits.
