- Your citizenship status
If you are approved for cash and SNAP benefits, you will receive a benefits card. You can use this card to purchase food at authorized retailers.
The amount of cash and SNAP benefits you receive will vary depending on your household size and income. You can find more information about the benefits amounts on the USDA website.
