In Michigan, benefits are sent out once per month into SNAP accounts, which are linked to Michigan Bridge Cards. The Michigan Bridge Card works like a credit or debit card. You can use your card to purchase eligible food items at authorized locations.

Eligibility is based on the financial situation of all members of a household. The MDHHS will review your expenses, assets and income to determine whether or not you’re eligible. If approved for benefits, the amount of SNAP benefits you receive depends on household size and countable income.

To determine whether or not you are eligible to receive SNAP benefits, you must fill out an application. You can use the MI Bridges portal to apply for assistance, check your eligibility status and manage your account online. You can also fill out a paper application and mail, fax or bring in to a local MDHHS office.
