I am just wondering bout the Children's Museum and how do I apply for it? Thank you .

Hi, Desiree! Apparently, the museum changed their website a bit. This link has more information about their memberships. I had no idea that our link was out-of-date. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!

I recently applied for SNAP in Nebraska. My income is $775 a month from Social Security and I have $100 in the bank. When I was homeless I was only approved for $16.00 a month and now that I rent a room and pay $350 rent and $50 utilities each month, the amount I receive is still only $50.00 a month. I know homeless people who receive $940 on their food stamp card. When I called to ask, the Snap lady said it's because I don't have expenses beyond my car (worth under $500), some medical bills, my cell phone and everything else.

Is that a way I can get the full amount?

Nicole

Hey, Tia! I'm out of the office until next week but when I get back I'll definitely look into this for you. There must be some sort of solution because that doesn't sound right at all.

Recently I attempted to buy a cold beef enchilada from the deli case at Family Fare in Omaha and it was not accepted on my SNAP card. I was told by one of the managers that it was a taxable product and therefore NOT EBT benefit eligible. But I had purchased this same item on April 30, 2017. And I have a receipt to prove that. Did new rules or laws pass in Nebraska that recently took effect?

Nicole

Friday 12th of May 2017

Hello, Randall! I looked and I wasn't able to see any law changes. A lot of employees (including management) don't fully understand the EBT laws, which are made at the federal level. I would assume that it's a human error and not a legal change. I'm sorry!
