Guam Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

2 min read

The Guam Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (formerly called the Food Stamp Program) helps you and your family buy food needed for good health. You can buy food from most grocery stores and other retailers that sell food. If you meet the program guidelines, you will get a special debit card (called an EBT card). The EBT comes with a certain amount of money already on it to pay for food. The amount of money you get on the card may depend on two things:

  • household income from all sources (earned and unearned) such as money you get from a job, Social Security, SSI, or interest
  • how many people live in your household

You can use the card at most grocery stores. It works just like a regular debit card. You buy your groceries using the card and the cost is taken out of the total amount on the card. More money is put on your card on a monthly basis.


How do I apply?

To apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), you can print and fill out an application form. You can also call the Guam Information/Hotline at (671) 735-7245 (statewide) or (671) 635-7411 (Northern Region), if you have questions about the program.
