Program Description

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps low income South Dakotans buy the food they need to stay healthy while they work to regain financial independence. SNAP benefits are provided to supplement the recipients food budget. The amount of benefits a household receives is based on its size and income.

In South Dakota during August 2013, 104,099 people (45,123 households) received $13.7 million in SNAP benefits. The average monthly benefit was $132 per person or $304 per household.

SNAP recipients are given a plastic debit card (South Dakota EBT Card) instead of paper coupons. The store cashier runs the debit card through a point-of-sale device to subtract the recipient’s purchase amount from their allotted benefits. Using the card is much faster and easier than using paper coupons and eliminates loss or theft of SNAP benefits.

South Dakota SNAP operates under the requirements of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
