Texas SNAP benefits are administered by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and can be used to purchase most foods and seeds and plants to grow food, excluding food that is hot when sold or food that is sold to be eaten in the store. Benefits are distributed once per month to Texas Lone Star Cards — the state’s EBT card.

SNAP is for low-income households that meet program rules. According to the Texas HHS, most adults between the ages of 18 and 49 with no children in the household can get SNAP for only three months in a three-year period. However, the benefit period might be longer if the person works at least 20 hours a week or is in a job or training program. 

If you live in a household where all members are either older adults (age 60 and older) or people with disabilities, you can apply for Texas Simplified Application Project (TSAP). This is a simplified SNAP application and it provides three years of benefits instead of six months.

The date you receive your Texas SNAP food benefits is based on the last digit in your Eligibility Determination Group number, with benefits being deposited onto Lone Star Cards over 15 days beginning on the first day of every month.
