Low-income single moms in Delaware are encouraged by the Food Supplemental Program (FSP) to purchase the food they need to maintain adequate nutrition levels for themselves and their children.
Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) is the system through which the benefits are issued. By 6:00 a.m. the morning after benefits are approved, the amount is posted to the client’s account. Starting with the 2nd calendar day of each month, the benefits are posted to accounts alphabetically over fifteen calendar days. The staggered issuance allows more grocers to help improve customer service for all shoppers while they restock their shelves with nutritious fresh foods.
General Program Requirements
As a single mom you must be a resident of the state of South Dakota in order to qualify for this benefit program and fall into one of two groups:
– Those with a current bank balance (savings and checking combined) under $2,001.
– Those with a current bank balance (savings and checking combined) under $3,001 who share their household with a person with a disability (a child, your spouse, a parent, or yourself), or with a person or persons age 60 and over.
A group of people who purchase and prepare food together is defined as a food benefit household. Children under the age of 22 and spouses who live together must be included in the same food benefit households. In order to receive food benefits applicants must be a U.S. citizen or an eligible alien.
