The US Virgin Islands Food Stamp Application (SNAP) helps low-income families in the US Virgin Islands buy the groceries they need for good health. The U.S. Virgin Islands Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits are provided on a special debit card loaded with a certain amount of money to purchase groceries at most grocery stores.
The Food Stamp card allows you to buy your groceries and the cost will be deducted from the total amount on the card. In addition, the amount of money you get on the card can depend on three things:
- Household income from all sources (earned and undeserved). This includes money you get from a job, social security, SSI, or interest.
- Number of people living in your household.
- The place where you live
Plus, more money is transferred to your debit card every month.
