Food Stamps (also known as “SNAP” (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)) provides food assistance to low-income individuals and households through an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card known as the Horizon Card.
People apply for Food Stamps online or they fill out a hard-copy that they can pick up in Utah at a DWS (Department of Workforce Services) office. If they are eligible, they will receive benefits on an EBT card.
Utahns Against Hunger works to connect eligible households to food stamps.

The Food Stamp Calculator does not make the final determination and is only a screening tool to estimate potential benefits.
