What is EBT?
Electronic Benefits Transfer, or EBT, is a system that makes the issuance of state Family Assistance and federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits faster and easier through the use of electronic transactions. SNAP beneficiaries can use their EBT cards at grocery stores and Farmers’ Markets that are authorized by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). EBT is derivative of the previous food stamps program.
