The Food and Nutrition Program in the state of Oklahoma is run by the Department of Human Services. SNAP, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, helps a large number of families and individuals in Oklahoma by providing them with the funding they need to purchase nutritious food for themselves and their families. To qualify for the funding, residents of Oklahoma must show that they are in the low income range and earn less than two thousand dollars each month. The applicants must also be able to show that they are American citizens and that they reside in the state of Oklahoma. The application form will also request the number of the people living in the household.
Applicants who are approved for Food Stamp benefits receive their financial assistance through an Oklahoma electronic benefit transfer card. Monthly amounts are deposited onto the card every four weeks. Qualifying residents are able to use the card to buy their food items at any grocery store.
