What is EBT?

EBT stands for Electronic Benefits Transfer. It’s the electronic system that is used to deliver funds for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (cash benefits) programs.

People who are eligible and apply for these programs receive an EBT card, which is automatically loaded with the funds every month. As a result, these benefits are often called EBT benefits.
