Michigan’s SNAP is administered by the state’s Food Assistance program and overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services. Benefits are deposited onto Michigan Bridge Cards once per month and can be used at grocery stores and some large retailers and farmers markets. Look for the Quest logo or ask an employee before attempting to make a purchase using your card.

Your SNAP benefits can be used to purchase most food items, excluding foods that are hot at the point of sale. Your Michigan Bridge Card works just like a debit card, and any money left over from one month is carried over to the next month. However, food and cash benefits will be returned to the state and/or federal government if not used for a year.

The MDHHS will review your household’s expenses, assets and income to determine whether or not you’re eligible. If you’re approved for benefits, the amount of SNAP benefits you receive will depend on household size and countable income.
