Iowa Snap EBT Info Page

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

Iowa SNAP helps low-income families with children and vulnerable adults get healthy food. Its major objective is to assist Iowans with modest incomes in purchasing sufficient nutrient-rich food.

Benefits are given out via the state’s Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system, which can be used to purchase groceries at grocery stores, supermarkets, and select Farmers Markets.

Federal standards that take into account household size, income, household expenses, and other factors determine eligibility and benefits. Only extremely low or no-income families are eligible for the maximum benefit.
