SNAP enables low-income families to buy nutritious food with Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards. SNAP recipients spend their benefits to buy eligible food in authorized retail food stores/Farmers' Markets.

To be considered eligible for SNAP assistance, you must meet the following basic requirements:

  • U.S. citizen or legal alien
  • Work requirements (unemployed adults, ages 18 TO 50)
  • Meet income standard(s) shown on Appendix C-3
  • Social Security Number for all members included in food benefit household.

The preferred application method is to apply online at www.OKDHSLIVE.ORG. However, you may submit a completed form 08MP001E (Request for Benefits) to your Local DHS Human Services Center.
If you are unable to access the form online, they are available at your local office.
