Snap Benefits

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or formerly known as Food Stamps)

SNAP provides food assistance to low-income individuals and households through an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card known as the Horizon Card. 

To apply for benefits go to Department of Workforce Services at jobs.utah.gov/mycase.

You may also apply at a Utah Department of Workforce Services Office or we can mail an application to you; however you may lose benefits due to mailing delays.

  • No documents are needed to file an application.
  • You may be eligible for expedited SNAP benefits receiving SNAP within seven calendar days.

Expedited SNAP benefits are a faster way to get your first month of SNAP benefits. You may be eligible for expedited SNAP if:

  • You have $150 or less in monthly gross income and $100 or less in liquid assets (cash and money in the bank), or
  • Your shelter costs are higher than your combined gross monthly income and cash and savings or
  • You are a migrant household with $100 or less in cash and savings.

 

  • Identity is the only verification you need if you are eligible for expedited SNAP.

For more information, call 1-800-453-FOOD (2561) or visit UAH.org
