"Get the Balance on your Oregon EBT Card"

Oregon EBT Card Balance

Are you trying to find the balance on your Oregon EBT Card? In today’s post, we’re going to provide you with the two methods for obtaining your current Oregon EBT card balance.

The Oregon Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the food stamps program provides monthly cash assistance benefits to eligible low-income individuals and families.

Monthly cash assistance benefits are designed to increase the food purchasing power of low-income Oregon households.

The Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) is responsible for administering SNAP benefits to approved households.

Benefits are issued on the same day each month to a plastic bank card called an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.

The Oregon EBT card, also known as the Oregon Trail card can be used at approved grocery stores to purchase eligible food items at the point of sale (POS) terminals.

The eligible food item list for the food assistance program is determined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

For a full list of approved food items, please refer to the USDA-eligible food list here
