Program Description

The Alaska Food Stamp Program provides food benefits to low income households. The Federal government funds 100 percent of the food stamp benefit. The State pays half the costs of operating the Food Stamp Program in Alaska. The Division of Public Assistance issues food stamp benefits via the Alaska Quest card. The amount a household receives each month depends on the household’s countable income and size of the household. Eligible households use the food stamp benefits to buy food products from authorized stores statewide.
