Ohio Snap EBT Info Page

Welcome to SNAP EBT information page for the state of Ohio.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as the Food Assistance Program (FAP) in Ohio, provides financial assistance to low-income families in Ohio who qualify to stretch their food budgets and purchase nutritious foods.

Food assistance benefits are disbursed electronically using an “Ohio Direction Card” that may be used as cash in most grocery shops and certain farmers’ markets wherever EBT is accepted.

Another nutrition aid program that sends low-income, elderly people a monthly food package is the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). Every one of Ohio’s 88 counties offers CSFP.
