The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) payments for Montanans will be disbursed this week, namely between February 2nd and February 6th.

SNAP benefits, distributed through an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card known as the Montana Access Card, can be used at approved locations, including farmers markets and grocery stores. 

Recipients should note that these benefits are intended exclusively for purchasing groceries, fresh food, seeds, and plants. They cannot be used for nonfood items, tobacco, alcohol, pet food, or prepared foods.

The SNAP program plays a vital role in supporting individuals and families facing food insecurity by providing essential assistance for purchasing nutritious food items. By offering financial aid to eligible households, SNAP helps alleviate hunger and improve dietary quality across communities.

Montana Access Cardholders are reminded to utilize their benefits responsibly and to ensure that they adhere to the program’s guidelines regarding eligible purchases. Additionally, recipients are encouraged to stay informed about any updates or changes to the SNAP program that may affect their benefits.

As SNAP continues to provide vital support to millions of Americans, including those in Montana, efforts to strengthen and expand access to nutritious food remain essential in addressing food insecurity and promoting the well-being of individuals and families statewide.
