Just moved to Utah. Can I use my Idaho food stamp in Utah?

unemployed_questionA) No, you cannot use your Idaho food stamp benefits in Utah, and vice versa. Each state has its own Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and benefits are not transferable between states.

When you move to a new state, you will need to apply for benefits in your new state of residence. You can find information on how to apply for SNAP benefits in Utah on the Utah Department of Workforce Services website, or by calling the Utah SNAP hotline at 1-866-526-3663.

It’s important to note that the eligibility requirements and benefit amounts may differ between states, so you will need to go through the application process in Utah to determine if you are eligible for benefits and what your benefit amount will be. Additionally, the process of applying for and receiving SNAP benefits can take several weeks, so it’s important to plan accordingly to ensure that you have enough food and resources during the transition.

Food stamp programs, also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), are federally funded and administered by each state. While the program is uniform across the United States, the benefits are issued by each state and can only be used within that state’s borders.

Therefore, if you have an Idaho food stamp card, you will not be able to use it to purchase food in Utah. You will need to apply for SNAP benefits in Utah and obtain a new EBT card issued by the state.

You can contact the Utah Department of Workforce Services for information on how to apply for SNAP benefits in Utah. They can also provide you with information on other assistance programs that may be available to you.
