What is SNAP?

SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, a program designed to help people in Montana make ends meet and afford healthy food. SNAP participants receive monthly food benefits on the Montana Access debit card. Locate nearby grocery stores, farmers markets, and other retailers that accept SNAP benefits with the USDA SNAP retailer map. Find additional information on the DPHHS website – SNAP Program Overview »
