In Oklahoma, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is administered by the Department of Human Services. The program serves as the first line of defense against hunger by providing financial assistance to low-income households to purchase eligible food items. More than 600,000 people depend on SNAP benefits in Oklahoma each month. To receive SNAP benefits, you must first be eligible. You must meet certain tests for residency and income/resource limits.
Once you’ve determined you’re eligible, you need to apply for food stamp benefits. You must visit your local county DHS office, a local One Stop center or Social Security office to obtain an application. You can use this locator tool to find the nearest office. You can also download and print the general application for benefits. If you are approved for SNAP benefits, you will be issued an Oklahoma Access Card. This EBT card is used to purchase eligible food items at participating stores. Simply swipe at the register and enter your four-digit PIN.
