Learn More and Get Started

To start, customers will need to qualify with a valid Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. An EBT card is commonly used to disburse funds for several government assistance programs including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Women, Infants, and Children Nutrition Program (WIC). Customers can qualify every 12 months, up to four times. Amazon will add other ways to qualify in the future for customers participating in government assistance programs that do not utilize EBT.
