The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is administered through the Food Assistance Division in Alabama. SNAP is a federally funded program, but each state administers its own program with its own rules and regulations.

SNAP benefits are intended to help low-income and needy individuals and families purchase fresh food and groceries each month through approved grocers and vendors. In Alabama, you can apply for food assistance benefits online through the MyDHR or MyAlabama websites. You can also complete an application and either bring it in person to the Department of Human Resources in your county or mail/fax it in. 

Food assistance benefits are transferred onto Electronic Benefit Transfer cards, or EBT cards, once a month. The amount of your benefit will depend on the size of your household. The Alabama EBT card operates like a regular debit or credit card and is used as such at regular point of sale systems. 

In Alabama, EBT cards are loaded with benefits from the fourth to the 23rd of each month depending on the last two digits of your case number. Your case number is assigned to you once you are approved for benefits.
