Louisiana Snap EBT Info Page

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

Louisiana SNAP is a federally financed program that provides food assistance to eligible low-income Louisianans.

The Louisiana Combined Application Project (LaCAP) or SNAP are two options for eligible households to receive food assistance.

Benefits are based on the number of people living in the home and the monthly net income that remains after all allowable deductions.

SNAP funds provide for only a portion of most households’ food budgets; they must also use their own income to buy enough food to last the entire month.
