The Kentucky Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, boosts low-income families’ food purchasing power.
The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services Division of Family Support administers the state’s SNAP program, and your SNAP benefits will be transferred monthly into a SNAP account connected to your EBT card.
Your household must meet basic income and resource requirements to be eligible for SNAP in Kentucky.
Work registration is required for all household members between the ages of 18 and 59. 16- and 17-year-old applicants may be required to engage in employment registration in particular instances.
Adult children over the age of 21 who live with their parents may be eligible for their own SNAP benefits if they buy and prepare their own food. Adult siblings who live apart from their parents’ house may have their own SNAP benefit accounts.

Within 30 days of filing a SNAP application, you will get a notice stating whether or not your household is eligible for benefits. Under some conditions, you may be eligible for expedited benefits.
You’ll get your EBT card in the mail once you’ve been approved for benefits. Except for ready-to-eat prepared items, you can use your card to buy practically any food item.
SNAP benefits are distributed in Kentucky on the first 19 calendar days of each month. The last digit of your case number determines the day you receive payments.
