Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) helps individuals & households with low-income buy the food they need for good health.  SNAP benefits are not cash.  SNAP benefits are provided on an electric card that is used like an ATM or bank card to buy food at most grocery stores.

The Basic Food Program helps supplement Washington residents’ diets with healthy and nutritious food.  Eligible households receive an Electronic Benefits Card (EBT) to purchase food items at participating businesses each month.

Community Action Center offers assistance with the application and recertification for SNAP benefits.  Contact Community Action Center (509-334-9147) for an appointment to assist you in completing the SNAP application.
