Food Stamps in Elizabethtown

The SNAP program, also called Food Stamps, provides food benefits for low-income households in Elizabethtown. Participating households receive an electronic debit card (EBT card) that pays for certain household food items. SNAP recipients can also use the EBT card to buy plants and seeds to grow food. In Elizabethtown, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmers markets accept SNAP benefits.

Elizabethtown SNAP Eligibility

Elizabethtown residents qualify for SNAP benefits by meeting eligibility guidelines based on household size, income, and assets. The income and asset limits vary, depending on the household size and the number of children, seniors, or people with disabilities in the household. To qualify for SNAP, able-bodied adults without dependents must either work or participate in qualified training or educational programs. Children, seniors, and people with disabilities are exempt from SNAP work requirements. SNAP recipients must be citizens or lawfully documented non-citizens. In Illinois, households that receive cash benefits from other means-tested programs, including Supplemental Social Security Income, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), or General Assistance, automatically qualify for SNAP.
